   RE: May a thousand XML-DEV's bloom - NOT!

I have to agree with Don Box here.  We do not want to
replace XML-DEV with 5-10 different lists.  Mailing lists
like SML-DEV are harmless because they represent the side
streets while XML-DEV represents the town square.  If we
are to move XML-DEV again, I think we must do two things
to ensure its survival:

1. It must be the last move.

This translates to using XML-DEV specific domain name.
Both xml-dev.org (by Andrew Layman) and xmldev.org are
taken (most likely reserved to protect XML-DEV).

2. Peter must lead the move.

To prevent the patient from dying during the trip, we
need Peter to act as the Pied Piper.

Even if OASIS comes through, I think we should go ahead
with #1 so the subscribers can slowly migrate over to
an address independent of the hosting organization.
