But it isn't documented?
If it's the same for tables, (not stated in the documentation), then
wikka needs a row separator?

I'm concerned that people find out about such things through use, start
to rely on them and when this group takes them away cries foul,
as happened with browser quirks.

Which is definitive? the formatter RE's or the system documentation?
A BNF would resolve this with definitive clarity.
