So let's see if I understand this:
Are XML datatypes core technology? No.
Are XML datatypes useful under certain contexts? Certainly.
Can the support and transport of datatype information impose a burden in
contexts where datatypes are not useful? Of course.
Datatype support should be modular.
Datatypes should not creep into core Recs.
In contexts where datatypes are not useful, there should be a mechanism to
toss away or filter out datatype noise. (I suppose the same could be said
for namespaces, as well, or any other meta-meta-tag info.)
So why is this class warfare and not merely an argument for good software
Politics? Mmmm... could be.
