The job of XMl is not to provide meaning. I have many techniques for managing
meaning of data in XML, all of which are infinitely more expressive than WXS.
Why would I even use something as weak as WXS to manage something as
multifarious as meaning?
I am happy for people to use whatever works for them to manage the semantics
of their tags. I just don't want one group's particular preference melded
into core XML processing specs.
I should think this distinction is a really clear one, but for some reason it
does not seem to be getting across.
