Indeed.  I think it would be hard for anyone hanging out on XML-DEV to think 
of denizens as breathing their own exhaust.  XML-DEV is one of the few forums 
I've seen where truly *no* precept goes without thorough (and sometimes 
pedantic) scrutiny.

In threads parallel to this one, XML old heads are complaining harshly about 
XML.  I may not agree with them in degree, but I think it does tend to refute 
the notion that this is a big back-slap-happy club.
