Stateful controls do not belong in plain text. There are very few
exceptions to that general rule, but variant indication is definitely not

I think it's up to you to develop a workable alternative to parallel

As the discussion has gone on for a long time on the list and has involved
only a small number of participants, I suggest that you contact the
interested parties offline.
