so if they  are needed, but don't work anywhere, how do people manage
today? I am tempted to say that if you have survived 10 years without
an implementation, spending money on it now may be a luxury?

I think it could actually be better to recast the stuff in pure TEI, actually,
to avoid the impression that some software somewhere is going to implement it.
