Too true. There are tradeoffs even to the tradeoffs.

A problem with entities is that they are in the syntactic domain rather
than representing relationships.

Indeed indeed. They stand between us and the parse.

Yet I find the same thing to be true of all these so-called static
site generators, which work entirely by tag-patching, and think we
have still not come far enough. The bad old thing keeps getting
reinvented even after we have better. It makes me sad to have
beautiful clean data coming out of my process and hear them say, do
you think we could have it in Markdown?

Cheers, Wendell
