As for the first point, I think you really need a few years to see how 
successful a technology will be in the marketplace, and what problems it 
causes in practice. That's why I chose technologies I consider very well 

One of the ramifications of new technologies is you simply don't know right 
away how successful they will be. Personally, I think that XQuery and Web 
Services will also turn out to be real successes, but we shouldn't proclaim 
that until after the marketplace has adopted them.
