RE: Closing Blueberry

Cowan indicates a syntax adjustment only.  If it is 
explained that way, the rest of the fire won't matter 
because the people who have to implement it know what 
they are implementing.  The press is getting smarter 
and because of the dot.bomb, less likely to light new 
fires in which they are ultimately exposed as being 
unable to critically evaluate it.  

It isn't an issue of much importance unless 
1.0.1 becomes 1.1, or too quickly, 1.0.2.  Just don't 
shoehorn in other changes opportunistically.  That 
will set the woods on fire.

Elliote is totally right on this one.  The frenzy surrounding
XML is a couple orders of magnitude beyond the bounds of reason
and shows no sign of abating (see this week's Business Week,
for example).  I think that if the W3C does this, they owe
it to the world to downplay it to the maximal extent possible.
"1.0.1" seems sound. -T
