Well put.  In fact there are cases where it makes excellent sense for 
processes on the same machine to flow XML around, but lots of cases 
where it doesn't.  But if you're passing around a DOM, or a SAX event 
stream, please don't kid yourself that it's XML.

And in particular, it would be disastrous if you were able to advertise 
to some external party that you provide XML, and then offered anything 
but unicode-with-angle-brackets. -Tim
