So the next versions will be mkix, mkxi, mkxv, mkxx, mkxl, mkli, mklv, and 
mkxc. It is gonig to get confusing real soon :)

BTW, does anyone has a minimal example on how to use mkvi syntax. I tried 
a few examples, but the best that I could do was using one of the mtx-* 
scripts to convert mkvi to tex (And that conversion does not work for 
\starttextdefinition ... \stoptexdefinition).
