The headline will likely be similar to one of the following:

a. "W3C faces developer revolt"
b. "XML torn by in-fighting"
c. "Future of HTML in doubt"

Sure, none of these fairly represents our discussions, but that's
nothing new.  I expect that (a) will win, because the issues around
(b) and (c), such as the number and nature of Namespace URIs and the
importance of schemas, will leave most readers snoozing.

For the record, I support the People's Front of Judea over the Judean
People's Front in all of this.

All the best,
