Re: [xml-dev] Caught napping!

   XML does not claim to be a general theory of data; 

I agree.

				   Types, of course, are a well-known issue
   that is supported in the Schema layer on top of XML itself, and are
   admittedly still a bit bleeding edge.

I agree, and just think it's worth explicitly mentioning that it's not
really the place of the XML database people to dictate how types work
in XML.  The XML community defines the types, and then the XML
database system makers have to do whatever the community dictates.
