With respect, this is merely a convenient mereological ruse used by BIGCO
that has little bearing on
reality as most on this list can attest.
Maybe I should have used the term "Boxed XML" rather than "XML Core".
My impression is that W3C XML Schema is a like virus that is infecting the
organism from the outside in. XSLT2, XPath 2 not to mention the
DTDs etc. etc.
Vendors shipping "word processors" that only do W3C XML Schema flavored
schemas completes the rout I fear.
Of course, the big vendors have scent of a money trail. If the developer
wants to pretend that XML is just another RPC mechanism and another persistence
mechanism, then it is not in the interest of their shareholders to send back
the cheques :-/
