Would you say that fundamental physic is done because we have chimists 
and know how to produce plastics and microprocessors?

It's not because people are developing applications that it's no use to 
work on the fundamentals.

I am convinced that there are still lots of things to learn and improve 
in the core mechanisms of XML and that we need a place (xml-dev or any 
other) to discuss this.

I don't feel qualified (nor very interested) by these debates. Do they 
need to be carried on the same list?
