Yes & no. Some directives, including tocauto, have to be at the start of
a line and should be on lines by themselves. If they are not used often,
it's helpful to give the author a cue on correct usage -- having a
special character for directives that need their own line seems to me a
useful thing to do. The markup ought to guide people to 'do it right the
If the markup is
=tocauto On this page...
(replacing the default heading), an author knows this has to start a line.
It seems to me that:
"directives of the form '=keyword parameters' have to be on a line
by themselves; directives of the form '[:keyword parameters:]'
can be anywhere"
is easier to remember than:
"all directives take the form '[:keyword parameters:]' and some
of these have to be on a line by themselves"
But that's just me...

I think it becomes:
=Q Question: What is the meaning of life?
=A Answer: 42 (but only if you have 13 fingers)

I think the current proposal is
[:Q:]Question: What is the meaning of life?
And it might even be an unlikely:
[:Q Question: What is the meaning of life?:]
[:A Answer: 42:]
I don't know if the Q: and A: syntax is being brought into
the directive markup model.
