It's nice to have an opinion (what blogs are and all they are).
It's worth reading if the writer has some experience doing the
job he is critiquing. It's a lot like standards: experience
I don't think a spec should be called a standard until it
has been implemented and in use by a million people for
five years. Of course the technology may be obsolete by then,
but hey, how many working technologies are just about fully
cooked when they are obsoleted by something half-baked?
The reality is that the vendors are proposing technologies.

This piece by Zeldman on his blog should be required reading by all those on
the W3C, large vendors (IBM, MS, Sun et al), and many that are promoting the
latest/greatest XML "standards" here.
Nice to see that someone understands the reality of the situation.
