Paul Cotton, Jim Melton, and Mike Champion will be panelists, and Ron
Bourrett will be unless he has to cancel - he is still working this out. I
think you will see a broad range of views in this panel. XQuery, SQL/XML,
native XML databases, XML views of relational databases, and other
approaches will be discussed.

Here's a description of this town hall - and a list of some of the
controversies that will be discussed:


A question born of mild curiosity.

Would it be totally off the mark to assume that your sudden burst of interest in the impact of datatyping and the cry for "concrete" [sic] examples is, at least in part, so that you can declare to the assembled throng that nobody on XML-Dev could come up with a "concrete" example which showed that datatyping caused problems?

If the basic reason for the question is something else would you care to share it with us so we can at least respond to the question in its context?
