It's interesting how arguments come full circle on this list. :) 

I seem to remember posting something similar to this a month or so ago
and I'm sure someone's been posting it every time this argument has ever
occurred. I think the exact gist of it was something along the lines of
using XML Catalogs + RDDL + a document type PI would solve most of the
complaints I'd seen about RDDL. 

Of course, agreeing on this would require consensus instead of more
pointless arguments about semantics and metaphysics. ;)

I will not turn into a snake. It never helps.
