Thanks for bringing this to attention Eric; I am not up on all of the
previous discussion on this issue. In my opinion, be it considered
humble or not so humble, support for <!--break--> should never be
removed. 1) I've gotten used to it and it is natural. 2) I would have
to update my previous entered data.
Promoting [break] as a new means to using <!--break--> would be OK but
not necessary and <break> should never be allowed as it breaks in too
many semantic areas.
-1 for this change.
