That is part of the question but it leads 
into an interesting discussion of context 
and the scope of context.  Ask yourself 
why transforms require a side-effect free 
language?  Why can a rule or assertion 
based validation such as Schematron do 
more powerful validation than a regular 
grammar such as a DTD?

The problem so far with "semantic" is the 
lack of clarity about what "to do".  The 
problem I have with Roger's assertion is 
that in fact, data does not interoperate.

So is the question really "Will an application's use of XML data be
facilitated by providing that data with a domain or context?"
