Some of us are just egg-centric
and in search of the next chicken.
Anyway, since SGML is entity-based and that's
where the toys came from, it's hard to lay that
at their feet. You might want to have a chat
with the mil-spec folks who did 38784 since many
of the really overbuilt DTDs started there.
Then there were the database heads who claimed
one couldn't say database and document in the
same sentence without using an oxymoron.
Some of us know why a DOCTYPE has a lot
in common with a Texas-style sliding tie.
Actually, Neill Kipp had to explain that
one to me.

It gets back to the 'data centric' vice 'document centric' issue. SGMLer's
seem to instinctivly go document centric while people like myself
instinctively go data centric.
