I agree. The archives of this list (1997-03...) also cover an important
part of this historical period and I suspect all of the early members of
the XML-WG and XML-SIG were subscribers. You will see some of the
discussion taking place in "public", although much more is in the archives
of the WG and SIG. I would also support the analysis that XML was truly a
group effort - the early members put in a *huge* amount of work and I
regard the deliberations of the SIG (I was privileged to be a member) as
one of the great virtual collaborations of all time.
