> OK, yeah, we got that part. The question is, will the use of this

The idea is to have normative equations and diagrams.

Probably at first people will leave SOME text in the pure ASCII version,
but as time goes on and we get used to using diagrams more and more,
the text will probably vestigial.

start with the plain text in your ID, they could just start with the txt
format. 

Absolutely, although it would be harder for them to understand the point
