RE: XML is _post_ OO

However, the interface might be (and very often is) 
as simple as Import<->Export fields of hopefully 
structured data.  Can one code smarter interfaces? 
Sure.  Can one afford to do that often?  No.  So 
very often it comes down to, show me your names, 
descriptions, and field lengths, I'll show you 
mine.  Whatever we determine is common, we exchange. 
Beyond that, the information loses or Mr Customer 
pays one of us to make adjustments.

XML is just smart ASCII.

A self contained system is always delimited by boundaries,
