<< is a special case, however it is a special case of the same
magnitude as <lt>.  The change doesn't introduce "special case" logic,
it just trades one set of logic for another.

People think that << is more readable than <lt> and this justifies the
change.  I can't disagree with this.

As I mentioned in an earlier message, <verbatim> does three different
things, all at once:

1. It turns off filling
2. It changes the newline model
3. It turns off command interpretation (except </verbatim>)

It is useful to do (1) without doing (3), so a <nofill> command is
needed regardless of whether <verbatim> exists.
