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.
