Isn't polymorphic behaviour from a single XML document actually
i.e. one can view the document from multiple processing perspectives
by selecting the appropriate architectural form and associated architectural
After the last discussion on AFs, I was left with the conclusion that
one could address some (all?) of the type derivation requirements of
XSD using an Architectural Forms based approach. Or more to put
this another way, that AFs facilitate variations in schemas but still
provide a validatable core.
Unfortunately I've just not had the time to either fully test this idea,
or more formally write up that same discussion.
