I see how it could be useful, indeed.  It also somehow blurs the distinction
between the document and the conversion, but if it has uses, it is worth it.

Don't you think that this would be better to have @-commands expanded (as 
raw text)?  Would that be feasible to implement in TeX?

Also should there be a second command which translates to a warning and not 
an error?

Karl, is it ok?
