RE: Rules & Grammars

Nope.  Too late.  XML Schema has already 
been absorbed, implemented, and application 
languages are being created and shared, 
books are headed for the shelves, the tutorials 
are being presented, the best practices 
published, and so on.  

Like HTML colonization, by the time you 
figure out the *minimal victory* is pyrhhic, 
the troops have already gone home with 
the booty to farm and make babies.

Better luck next time with the requirements. 
It might be a good idea to choose 
*one* of the rules-based designs and 
sanction it.  That will reduce the 
surface area.

So I say to you all: go back in your caves and come out with 
*one* schema facility that lets me write grammars when I want 
to and xpath expressions when I want to, and has an elegantly 
unified syntax.  Then declare victory.  For extra credit, 
replace entities too (just kidding).  -Tim
