This makes perfect sense in an object world view but is a source of dispair 
for those
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 
creating the
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.
