That last element should be:

Publishers should be aware that self-linking from a page, to itself,
causes accessibility issues.

Nice work Mark - I appreciate that these are early days for you, but
have you thought about:

   *    providing a tool for scraping exiting uFs into your site (for
        instance, I could submit the URL:


        to such a service, and all the events would be "auto-magically"
        added to your wiki.

   *    a simple HTML form, to allow entry of text components, and out
        put wiki markup, either directly into the wiki, or for cut &
        paste into the wiki
