If only *we* were being paid to read all this stuff :-)

I have a modest suggestion: no-one should ever say anything is broken
again unless and until they also have a working proposal of how to fix
it. If we all kept to this discipline, XML-DEV would be more stimulating
for everyone, and lead into a more beautiful future.

Dr Newcombe is a good model in this: he questioned namespaces severely,
but in the light of what he thinks is an alternative addressing the
underlying problem as he sees it: architectural forms.
