This is consistent with the model used by several database vendors -- allow
Java extensions for adding types, behavior, and new SQL functions.

Eventually XML, data integration, and content aggregation will be
approachable at several levels. Low level: parsing and navigation. Higher
level: APIs such as assembleDoc(...), rules markup, and code-generation
solutions such as tpaML. Eventually we'll have speech and drag-and-drop GUIs
operating over those lower levels.
