"read it" and "write it" are two different things. It was always a premise
that humans can read it. That's a premise of XML too, which  is not intended
to be human-writeable.  I think when we discussed cql
human-comprehensibility, we neglected to draw this distinction, so I would
say (at this stage), there hasn't been a premise of human-writeability.
