Default YSO Sector Notation

Another, very light sector notation. The two characteristics are:

(1) section delimiting text for easy discovery of blocks
(2) key: "value" pairs for easy and consistent parsing

Other than these, it keeps a relatively free order of data. Any amount of key:value data can show up in each section, except for the sector data of course. It has very low overhead; lower than a standard generalized document format notation. It still pretty much requires regular expressions for parsing the UWP data.

Finally, the format LOOKS like plain text, and not unlike the usual SEC format. It looks natural; it's just regularized a bit.

Example.

Code:
META
Alt: 	"Sector iH"
Coord: 	"iH"
DOS: 	"alphacru"
Milieu: "Second Survey"
Ref: 	"10080 Ring/Ray 62864"
Sector: "Alpha Crucis"

SUBSECTORS
A: "Lazzerton"
B: "McKenzie"
C: "Dagir"
D: "Alba"
E: "Orichalc"
F: "Auva"
G: "Oriah"
H: "Fervore"
I: "Denebola"
J: "Veracruz"
K: "Vlad"
L: "Addison"
M: "Ziusudra"
N: "Regulus"
O: "New Holland"
P: "Galloway"
