So before anything else, I would like to assess if we can have a majority agreement that prog-mode is NOT an
implementation detail, but rather an API both users and developers are encouraged to use for
programming-related activities and customizations.

If we can agree on that, I think there are options for moving forward.

Beware: you are shifting the focus of this discussion from nxml-mode
and its ilk, which was the original issue, to an almost completely
unrelated one.  There be a lot of unrelated bikeshedding (which
actually already began).

Thanks Eli.

That's a good point. A point well taken.

Trying to get things back to where we started, with a minimal of bikeshedding, I think there's 3 obvious choices for what direction we can go:

Personally I feel like the third option may be the most "proper" one, but if people for some reason should be opposed to that, I still think the second option makes more sense than the first one.

So... Is there any obvious counter-arguments to the third option? Any reasons we should definitely not do that?
