I believe and hope this is true. The mapping that AFs
enable is too limiting in my experience. Case in point:
at XML 98 in Chicago the GCA issued a DTD for paper
submissions. I wrote a paper for that confernence using
XML. Along comes XML Europe 99 a variation on the
DTD for paper submissions. Even this mapping between
two DTDs from the same broad organization in the same
ballpark of document types cannot be done with AFs.
At least not with my cerebral cortex.
