Perhaps it would help along the namespace/XML-data/architectural-form
discussion if we had a concrete proposal for architectural forms in
XML.  I gave a talk on architectural forms at the XML Dev Day last
August, and sent around a handout which included a complete syntax for
implementing XML architectural forms.  I have done a quick, rough (and
manual) conversion of the handout from LaTeX to HTML and published it
to the following URL:


This proposal allows for well-formed architectural parsing, avoids
the need for data attributes, and provides reasonable defaults for
different levels of processing.  

That said, this is just a handout, not really really a proper spec
(and it probably also contains embarrassing typos).  Before I invest
the time in writing a full spec, I'd like to know what kind of
interest there is in this and what reactions people have to the
details.  Please note also that I am currently presenting this as a
private proposal, and am not acting on behalf of my employer,
Microstar, in any official capacity.

Thanks, and all the best,
