I agree with the suggestion that the government *ought* to publish 
machine readable tax data at no charge.  Establishing an open format is a
necessary first step in that direction.  Our customers are US importers,
and the US gov publishes quite a bit of machine readable data 
necessary to properly file entries.  That trend needs to grow, if
they expect compliance with ever more complex tax codes.
