LaTeX3 is too little, too late. A statement I will substantiate
with my submission to:
And if anyone takes exception to my proof, I'll send "Our Carol"
around to sort you out :-)

But joking apart, as Ivo noted we're living in the 21st Century and
following the likes of the climategate scandal: scientists have an
intellectual obligation to put their best document-foot forward.
Now judged from that perspective, Reinhard's aphorism can be recycle as:
LaTeX3 isn't the answer. LaTeX3 is the question, and the answer is NO.
