State the problem well. Before the work, let's
see the requirement. So far what I get from
Mike Champion et al is a general fear of the
flowers growing in the wild, not a valid requirement
or one which first answers the question of whether
or not a single subset can be of enough benefit to
enough constituents to be worth the work or the
risks. If multiple subsets are growing and if
they are as in the binaries, adapted to the needs
of particular applications, then the idea Henry
Thompson proposed of using conformance levels
will be the better course.
I've seen the statement for why SOAP restricted
the application. That's fine. I've seen no
evidence that it should be a normative subset.

>Let a thousand subsets bloom!
They already have, but we don't like to talk about that on xml-dev:-).
*They* are watching us you know.
Best that we just pretent the problem isn't there. Keep it too ourselves.

Plug'n'play XML interop? Perish the thought! Where is the money in that?
