I'm still a bit unsure where I should place Creole philosophically. I still like the criterion "should not stand out negatively in an email or be broken by email line-wrapping". On the other hand, markups that fully embrace this philosophy (such as Markdown) are unpleasantly heavyweight (especially when it comes to tables). Is there a discussion on this somewhere? It looks like a pro-multiline list entry argument. The other end of the spectrum would be "write-only syntax". For example: email-style blockquoting (where each line starts with '>') is much harder to type than Creole's "write-friendly" nowiki.
