Well I never bought that argument to start with. I thought then and
think now that XML would have been better if it had allowed short
end-tags. But it doesn't matter. The conservatism of the installed base
will prevent any changes to XML. They were conservative about changes in
*1998*. I personally think you'd have more luck arguing for electoral
reform or democratic world government.
