RE: Father of XML?

According to the XML 1.0 spec, the following were the original working group

Jon Bosak, Sun (Chair) 
James Clark (Technical Lead) 
Tim Bray, Textuality and Netscape (XML Co-editor) 
Jean Paoli, Microsoft (XML Co-editor) 
C. M. Sperberg-McQueen, U. of Ill. (XML Co-editor) 
Dan Connolly, W3C (W3C Liaison) 
Paula Angerstein, Texcel 
Steve DeRose, INSO 
Dave Hollander, HP 
Eliot Kimber, ISOGEN 
Eve Maler, ArborText 
Tom Magliery, NCSA 
Murray Maloney, SoftQuad, Grif SA, Muzmo and Veo Systems 
MURATA Makoto (FAMILY Given), Fuji Xerox Information Systems 
Joel Nava, Adobe 
Conleth O'Connell, Vignette 
Peter Sharpe, SoftQuad 
John Tigue, DataChannel 

I don't see Charles Goldfarb on that list. 

How about instead of trying to pick one of these folks to aggrandize with
the title of "Father of XML", we give credit to all of these folks for
bringing us XML. :-)
