Buh? Who edits HTML in an XML editor? Especially since the eRB  
escapes aren't, to my knowledge, real XML escapes and so I should be  
able to construct a valid RHTML file which isn't valid XML.

Why would you have to learn HAML? If we push out a stable Typo that  
uses HAML, we'll make sure themes can still use rhtml, so there  
should be no problem here.
