Well I guess the objection is that XML already has a data model for keys and
values, so building another one on top is a waste.
<key name="XXX" value="YYY" />
...might be written:
The name=... and value=... is perhaps pointless when XML already has a way of
associating a name with a value.
It might be compared to implement key/value pairs in Java using a List of
Maps, where each Map has keys called "NAME" and "VALUE"... as opposed to just
using a single Map.
