I'm saying that if they can be (and I agree it's an important issue,
which is why I mentioned it), then this is not the place it will be -
it'll need something new in wikitext for old or new parser. That's a
separate issue from reimplementing the present parser with as many of
its quirks and flaws as are needed.

If someone can specify precisely what would allow a naturally-typed ''
in Neapolitan to just work (without the parser flagging it as toggling
italics) in a way that could go into the old parser, without breaking
anything else, I expect good code would go in in the usual manner. And
the specification of how to make '' work properly without breaking
anything else would be a definite asset to the new parser grammar. So
(I presume, not being a dev) what's needed now to solve the '' problem
is good new code.
