For the point I was making, substitute "suppose you want to develop any 
interesting new technology that needs to describe typed data in a way that 
can be interchanged on the web and to query such data". Standards make it 
possible for the little guy to innovate. The lack of standards has been a 
concrete problem in the small, innovative companies I have worked for.

I happen to disagree with you about whether XML databases are useful, but I 
would rather discuss that separately.
