I don't think I'll post in this thread again (I always manage to get too
excited with this stuff), but I'll probably be happy to read it.

The concept is one thing and the implementation another.
Personally, I find myself rather surprised by our society system and
it's various side effects as I grow up. The only thing I know that can
be compared with terms like communism or capitalism is community; one of
the members in my happy thought set.
About XML technologies and XSD or RELAX NG in particular, they simply
obey the Newton model and the laws around inertia; it's as hard to get
them going as to stop and change direction. The problem is equally
difficult and important on both sides.
