and Minimal-XML are subsets of XML, so I guess the same argument can be made
that SML-DEV misappropriated W3C's intellectual property. Right or wrong,
its a twisted trail.
It was my
understanding that W3C has trademarked the word "XML" and copyrighted every
specifications it produces. If my understanding is right, then W3C is
claiming ownership over some words and a growing set of specific word sequences,
not ideas nor concepts.
I care less about
intellectual properties and more about good simple designs. For the past
couple of weeks, I have been looking at SNMP in detail. I don't know about
you guys, but SNMP goes in the same basket as SGML.
