If the validity of a standard is based on the process which defines it, I suspect that
the work done on xml-dev has the greater validity.

Open Source Software and vendor controlled standards bodies, IMHO, are a poor marrage.
The advantage of Java and XML is that they let you do significant work without the need
for a large team effort. Agreement and support of a few large vendors is no longer the
significant factor.

We need standards. But I suspect the process needs to be updated.
