If you think about it an ideal critical edition of Q
might contain at least four kinds of brackets. These
would include textual uncertainity (based on
manuscript evidence), synoptic uncertainity (based on
the synoptics + perhaps John), uncertainity based on
literary judgement, and a final bracket taking into
account all the previous evidence.
AGIW should be bracketed off as a text critical
variant. It may have been bracketed off for some other
reason, but signifying a possible variant reading here
certainly makes sense.

I would suggest that this may be a literary judgement
based on the parallel (Mt 3:12 / Lk 3:17 / Q). Here we
have a mention of "fire" at the end of the pericope,
being in an antithical relationship to the previous
mention of "water" at the beginning. The use of "holy
spirit" or even "spirit" does not seem to fit this
context. I would also suggest that the phrase "Holy
Spirit" is a later theological construct and does not
sound primitive (IMHO), and probably reflects a later
development of the text.
