This makes perfect sense in an object world view but is a source of dispair
of us who see XML as a markup language not an object serialisation notation.
I'm pretty confidence that those of us who see XML as markup - as
*documents* - are
in a minority. Such is life. But we were the minority who worked on
freaking think in the first place.
Sigh. XML is ceasing to be a technology with which I feel familiar or drawn to.
All changed, changed utterly,
A terrible beauty is born.
