I disagree - I have yet to see a data transformation/extraction 
application get in trouble because there were too many element names - 
but I think that neither of us can claim that there's a really large 
body of evidence to back up our positions.  This is why I'm unhappy that 
the XQuery WG is charging down the path of building a type-centric 
schema-centric system bulging with unnecessary complexity, on the basis 
of this speculative hypothesis.  -Tim
