Back on server announcements, Dan proposed a combination of MIME
typing and sending-the-announcement-to-the-right-place as a way
of making these announcements easier to automate.

This places a lot of responsibility on the person making up the
announcement message.  Could we do better by proposing a Form
to be filled out?  (Think about complicated announcements, in
which several URLs are given for various parts of the resource.)

I suppose I'm suggesting, indirectly, forms that complain when
you've filled them out incorrectly . . .
