RE: open, closed, "SGML for the Web"

Coming from a psychotrope, I know this is presumptious. 
The promise of markup is that if one adheres to 
the syntax, past that, it is up to the consenting parties 
as to what is the right thing.  Openness is something 
only the very mature and confident or the wholly 
uncaring can tolerate.  Reality for most engagements 
of common interests lies somewhere in between.

So perhaps one can realize the Web is just plumbing, 
not a lover.  Then one can learn to treat the web 
less like a lover, and one's lover less like plumbing.

...a focus on the open Web might at least encourage people to
focus on the few things they have in common, and can solve in common,
rather than the many things which keep them apart.
