On the contrary, it's an unalloyed good thing.  We have moved from a 
situation in which nobody in the world had ever heard of any schema 
facility other than XSD to a situation in which we are having widespread 
and quite enlightening discussions about pros and cons and trade-offs 
and options.  This is a major win.

And yes, it needed a fairly large-caliber cannon blast to alert the 
world that there are some issues here.   Sometimes you have to dump tea 
in the harbor to launch a debate about taxation structure.  -Tim
