These sound like new documents, not new projects. If some 
organization started marking up legislation or helicopter designs in 
SGML in 1990, and is still using that for new laws and new 
helicopters in 2002, that's not really a new use of SGML, any more 
than the latest Grisham novel is a new use of English.
