That’s valid point…I was also thinking about it and found something:

That was suggested to me at the beginning of year when I was asking
aobut ConTeXt vs Beamer, but the problem is it handles only Markdown
which is too simple for my general writing and when/if one uses
extensions, then it’s really a mess…

That’s true…I’m simply trying, like you, to have AsciiDoc as
single-source format and then publish content on the web
(static-site-generator), producing high-quality PDF and/or ePub.
