Unkind, Henry.  Steve is recognizing that Tim's *encouragement* from 
the position of Director to w3c chairs has "moral majesty", therefore, 
is a real order to get in line with the draft(s).  

That said, we have a lot of work to do to use the schemas particularly 
where we have language bindings via IDLs to do.  Because we have many 
separate efforts and different authorities to which we must determine 
how the names bind, we also will be cleaning this up for a long time.  
When we have to bind to the ISO level, we also have to work within 
five year change cycles.  So, it would have been a good idea for 
Tim to ask if everyone felt ready to make the change.  Personally, 
I'm for it because I need dynamic schemas to cope with time-volatile 

Otherwise, we're off to the races.  Place your bets, gentlefolk.
