"Eschew mixed content" seemed the most ridiculous (and memorable) at the
time, and I'd been having particular annoyances with general failures to
appreciate mixed content at that point.  (Both W3C XML Schema and RELAX
NG seem to treat it as a special case rather than as something quite
normal, though RELAX NG is less extreme in that.)  

Looking at the whole project in more detail and with examples, I find
the whole thing repulsive, at least when taken as an approach to
creating XML generally.  On the other hand, as a human-readable syntax
for RDF, it's far better than anything else I've seen.
