I did a presentation last week about my experiences from using the scribe-syntax at FOSS4G in Portland.

I have used the scribe syntax a little more than a year for two projects. It has really helped.

I really like scale management part and that you can have multiple DATA sources and style elements based on scale in the same layer.
That and the variables are the main advantages.

Sure, but to be really useful the discussion on mapserver-users should come with an intro to the syntax or perhaps even a draft RFC to serve as a base for discussion as most users don't know what Scribe is about.

Actually, there is a good intro at
http://scribeui.org/scribe-syntax.html so we could possibly use that to start a discussion. Do you want to start the discussion on the users list?
