Title: RE: [xml-dev] Painful USA Today article (was RE: [xml-dev] ANN: R ESTTutorial)
If you cite an application, it is given a decent spec for that application.
If you spec, XML, you are quite right.  
That is exactly the point. 
Now, for those in the XML system tools business, a different problem
is occurring.  The specs from the W3C are insufficiently modular to
enable you to spec tools according to finely granular requirements.
That makes it a hard business for anyone without deep pockets.
That is Simon's point and he is right.

Unfortunately, XML isn't quite so black and white.
