Kudos to Arofan Gregory for this article at 


It is a concise summary of the issues of developing message 
oriented systems with XML versus the traditional practices 
associated with monolithic document design.  It correctly 
emphasizes process analysis as part of the design but does 
not overlook that in some cases, "tag sprinkling" as it 
was once called is inevitable.  One might also want to 
emphasize the communal nature of negotiating long lasting 
schemas as the lone wolf approach seldom results in 
sufficient buy in.  The comment on "serious" hypertext 
is a bit gray but we are long past the days of wondering 
why HTML succeeded while serious efforts failed.  I think 
it can be summarized in the crusty "onto" reps "phylo" comment.

Thanks to Leigh Dodds for reviewing this article at xml.com.
