TKD doesn't use { } anywhere. Those are there because in TKD *italics* and
*bold* are used for tlhIngan Hol sentences and their translations, but
plain text doesn't support them.

Skipping punctuation won't help beginners, since most beginners expect it
and most Klingon texts use them. Everyone on this list conformed to the
list standards while they helped teach you Klingon. They didn't post blocks
of text with no punctuation and then expected you to struggle your way
through it. Why do you feel the need to spite new beginners by making it
more difficult for them? Punctuation isn't there for the writer, but for
the reader.
