Not a very knowledgeable article. It repeats what
has been known for a long time about markup based
technology and which reflects what the experienced
practitioners said from the beginning of the current
generation of markup, XML. Markup was
designed precisely to enable this variation and the
transform language to cushion the effects of diversity.
Without differentiation, there is no competition.
Without cooperation, there is no coherence in
business processes. These forces can and
must co-exist in the same trading space.
To assert the environment converges on one or two languages
is to misstate the goal and processes of information lifecycles in an
evolving environment and to reveal a lack of study of the history of
the applications of markup technologies.
