Um, as regards XML, you're joking, right?  Look at the history.  It's
_completely_ unlike HTML, it was way out ahead of what any vendors
were thinking about, much less trying-and-failing to interoperate.  It
was in fact a lot like XSLT and XML Schema:  real new science was done
in the WGs.


New "science" is arguably a potentially dangerous approach for a standards-setting body/group to take. Not least when it is paralleled by associated embedding of requirements for use of the result (XSD Schema) in other W3C technologies.
