Hi Florian,

I also reviewed your concepts and there's one minor point: You're doing
gesture recognition _after_ transforming. This may prove to be a source
of problems, but TBH, I don't see no general solution.

I think you make be better off by doing transforms, but retaining 'raw'
data so you have at least the option to use raw instead to recognize
gestures. E.g. clipping could get in the way.

Two things to consider:
* good parsers _can_ parse well-formed fragments (as opposed to full docs)
* xml namespaces are by far easier to extend than designing
forward-backwards-compatible languages and associated parsers.
