Tim Bray compares it to ASCII.  Does anyone discuss ASCII anymore?  Once in a 
while, maybe, in the context of Unicode or other character encodings that are 
supplanting it.  You're completely right on this one.  XML should become 
invisible and well-understood as it becomes ubiquitous; the problems it solves 
should be the focus of the discussion.

I think we could all use more beers together.  There will always be arguments, 
but there will always be (hopefully) beer.  Someday I'll actually make it to 
one of these conferences, and we'll have beer.
