We definitely want to allow users to create their own markup! We have  
no desire to force anyone to use a particular markup.

However, one of the goals of the Inline Edit is to greatly simplify  
the process of making something editable. We'd like to be able to  
"take care of it for you," that is, allow users to point the component  
to any piece of text and say "Please make this editable, I don't  
really care how you do it, so long as it's <yadda yadda>."

Basically, we want to be everything to everyone ;-)
