i would find this number way more helpful if it gave the percentage of
strings with markup only amongst strings which have placeholders, as
that is by far the most interesting target group.

i wouldn't set the hopes too high.
while the system is certainly well thought out, it isn't such a
spectacular improvement (as far as the average dev is concerned) that
you'd have much of a chance to stand against the momentum of the
solutions the various communities have. it's way more likely that you
gain traction when you optimize for minimal migration pain in a
community which is actually in search of a solution. the next qt
contributor summit is in only two months. how about another trip to
berlin? ;)

p.s.: i still have your epic mails in my inbox, and they perfectly serve
the purpose of giving me a bad conscience about still not having
answered them properly. let alone your paper. :}
