>From a practical point of view, Bryan is spot on. I am making the same kinds of decisions myself. However, at some point the XML spec "family" will be mature. It would be a shame if that mature set of specs lacked coherency and was thus harder to use.

I agree with this line of thinking.    There's a lot going on but I've got
deadlines to meet.  I think this would be tough if you are trying
to build a totally generic tool using XML since it means more and
more flavors coming at you.  Such a tool would be a moving target.

For some of us, we are not trying to handle arbitrary XML, but instead
have the luxury of using XML between different modules of our own projects.

Right now, therefore, I am doing my project
with plain XML and my own DTD as I don't see the other tools as far enough along 
to justify their approach.
