A browser-platform that understands [X]HTML/XForms/SVG/etc is not exactly what I'd call a thin client. ;)

	Hmmm ... There may not be an urgent need for the details of XHTML 2.0,
	but there is a VERY urgent need to promote the vision of the universal,
	XML-native, SVG/XForms/etc.-aware browser platform to counter the
	trends back to proprietary fat client systems that some seem willing to
	accept.  I agree with Len (I think) that these are good options for
	vendors to have, but they can't be allowed to marginalize the Web as it is
	and could be.
	Of course, the challenge is more to get implementations of what there
	is than to standardize all the innovations coming from the browser
	developers, but there still needs to be a strong XHTML activity to center
	this on.
