Which was kind of nice if you wanted to name 
the processor or say that a graphic should 
be tossed off to CGM this time, or vectordujour 
next time.  It was simply handy.

At one point in the Hytime work, SGML was 
considered just another notation too.  It 
was an interesting idea made necessary 
because in those days, there wasn't one 
ring to rule them all and no one even 
thought such a thing desirable.  Thus, 
architectures.  XML flattened the world 
via syntax unification.  That made SVG 
possible.  That was a good thing.

Yup. They could have attributes associated with them.
