I like this line of thinking and would like to see it
progress further.  Result should hopefully be a list
of firmer goals/requirements.

Everyone who are interested in SML are here mainly because
of its relationship to XML.  SML discussions have been
drifting somewhat away from XML so I would like to see
if this thread will help us get back to the original intent:
SML is a subset of XML.

Lately, I have been trying to gain a different perspective
by thinking what if SML was here first and XML was actually
SML 2.0?  This line of thinking adds a rather interesting
appreciation of attributes.

I hope you don't mind if I stay back in the background for
a while to observe because I found it rather difficult to
see things objectively while trading blows at the frontline.
