   RE: [xml-dev] The subsetting has begun

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

But if we define a new subset/core, what does 
that do to definition 3:  interchangeable parts? 
Today, the parsers are reasonably interchangeable. 
So are the gains worth the cost of introducing a 
new class of parser?

Otherwise, saying "XML provides interoperability" leads to these 
grinding permathreads and we are kidding ourselves 
about the value of a new subset.

Absolutely agree. XML does not provide interoperability - the use and
correct implementation of common vocabularies (and the correct use of
XML of course) provide interoperability.
