I'm not combining them. I have no problem
discriminating an application languge from the
meta language. There are those who are justiably
afraid that there will be some legalistic binding
through the infoSets, but so far, there isn't AFAIK.
My point is that some people will take the rocks others
consider worthless as these others rush for shinier
rocks and make something of worth with them.
The mistake is to think they shouldn't. Then
the mote is in the other eye. I'm very comfortable
with application languages competing for mindshare.
It is why we have generalized markup: options under
Namespaces is the most controversial topic
because it does alter the definition of XML 1.0
quite directly and because it is underfined
and it's implications not well-understood.

why are you combining xml and xml schemas -- people using XML does *not*
imply they will use XML Schemas.
XML Schemas, to the best of my knowledge, has been the most controversial
topic, so I think saying that XML implies XML Schema is not correct. I
think these are the mistakes we (especially the more knowledgeable and
experienced people) should try to avoid.
