But to quote your proposal: "The format/executable combination
that distribution vendors are to use for the executables named
`latex' and `pdflatex' is to be eTeX". That would break _all_
documents when the distribution/installation doesn't contain
eTeX, as is the case for all commercial distributors.

And what would the user gain from eTeX? Many are still using
2.09 anyway :-(
