   RE: [xml-dev] Elliotte Rusty Harold on Web Services

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

We're talking specifications for standard technology 
here, not innovations for new technology.  If one 
considers SOAP innovative, there is an impedance 
mismatch to the specification they are applying.

The main argument for the subset is the perceived 
danger of subsets growing in the wild.  Whether or 
not this is a real or an imagined danger has not
yet been established.  If this danger is real, 
I expect the subset to be something close to 
what TB has described in the SW plus something 
to accomodate the know id problem, eg, 
extending the xml: reserved namespace.

And the death of DTDs.  I suspect the real 
angst starts there.

<religious-analogy-beaten-into-the-ground> IMHO, It's time for 
ecumenicalism, not fundamentalism ... time to welcome innovators into the 
mainstream rather than driving them out as heretics ... time to accept the 
fact that XML is continually evolving from what survives in the real world, 
not invented by an omniscient Creator. </religious-analogy-beaten-into-the-
