For a long time we not so deliberately did limit the Web to people who
were comfortable hand editing tags. Then blogs came along, and changed
all that. (Wikis too.) There's an order of magnitude more people
publishing now than there used to be a few years ago, and blog usability
is largely the reason. Optional angle bracket syntax is one reason for
that, though there are others (automated site structures and content
upload are probably more important)
