Isn't that about what x-schemas were per the open list (ask Simon) that
started working on them before they became a W3C work project?
Paul, you've done this long enough to know the way of it.
SAX works. A net protocol for SGML could have worked. Lots
of good ideas would have worked but we stuck to our organizations
and our committees and our MEGO documents.
It might be time to change.
I'm not working on a revolution; maybe a seachange, a realization
among us that the closed committee way is not working. Maybe
something like SAX, the benevolently lead, slightly dictatorial
but totally exposed way works best. So far, it produced HTML, VRML
and SAX. So far these have worked. The thing that does not
work is "Internet Time". How about just "internet process"?
We yak until we get rough consensus and some running code.
Tell me, can groves be applied and if they can, is there
a good reason to do it? Anyone?
