No problem - there is no rush here. ;)

I admit it sounds/looks very good. Morever, it could allow me to e.g. use
org-mode for my original markup which I use anyway with Emacs and then do
org-mode --> XHTML.

Heh, for that I must learn some things first. :-)

ConTeXt is certainly more appealing..

It is far better to discharge one's prescribed duties, even though
faultily, than another's duties perfectly. Destruction in the course
of performing one's own duty is better than engaging in another's
duties, for to follow another's path is dangerous.
