I totally agree with this sentiment.  IMHO, if it's part of the core or even
an "official" recipe, it makes sense to use the clearest term/markup for
that.  I think it makes more sense for other recipes to change to a
different markup when there's confusion.

Also, as one who uses (and has been working on) blogging functionality, I
agree with the sentiment that it's fine as an easy recipe, not as part of
the core.  And, having messed around a lot, I think I like simple recipes
with lots of extensibility instead of blog functionality that's more
restrictive (e.g. I like the fact that BlogSimple2 lets you have multiple
blogs on the same wiki and posts from one or more blog(s) in any group, even
though it's a little more complex).  But simplicity will be key for most
