Re: [xml-dev] Adam Bosworth on XML and W3C

Rarely do you actually hear the words of God himself.
That's what puts the butts in the seats.

XML needs leaders, not more specs.  That and
working, free, and wicked fast tools.

Adam is capable of papering the world with
code.  MSXML proved that.  Even though Microsoft
has taken tons of grief for not following the (at the time)
nonexistent XSLT spec, Adam showed the world what
XSL could do and left the dotting of the i's and the
crossing of the t's to the politicians.

Save us, Adam.  If you can, please see to it
that BEA follows Oracle's lead in providing
the hungry masses with free, redistributable tools.

Also, "If we don't get answers, a movement to create kinder, simpler, leaner
alternative solutions for processing XML messages may be in order."  This
coming from a person of Bosworth's stature would have set off a flame war a
year ago ... can we now assume that silence means assent? :~)  Are the
minimalist heretics now welcome back in Church?
