What sorts of unwanted magic is draggged in?  Going back to my aircraft example:


Wouldn't it be useful to be able to find that the elevation element contains an
integer that is restricted to the range 0-20000?  Further, if the data model
provided "aliases" then I might even be able to find that "aircraft" and "plane"
are synonymous.  Isn't this useful information?

I have always thought that the more information that I have, the better decisions I
can make in processing the data.  A data model (whether the data model is an XML
Schema, or an RDF Schema) provides me with additional data that would be useful in
processing the data, yes?  /Roger
