But isn't that rather beside the point? For a given application, we
can of course limit ourselves to a particular subset of XML or some
other notation, and then write code that reads and processes only that
subset. That doesn't get us any closer to answering the question of
whether or not XML (or whatever) is suitable as a general-purpose
notation for data abstraction.
