XMLPP (Jabber moving through the IETF) pretty much aligns with SOAP
in its XML variant. The current XMLPP spec draft further disallows
the predefined entities*. This came up on a TAG thread. However, for
some, that makes XMLPP un-XML. In the same thread, SOAP is
considered not un-XML.
In anycase, if SOAP/XMLPP/BEEP are converging on an XML variant,
sometime this year would be a doubleplusgood time to spec it. And
Peter Saint-Andre has just mailed the TAG saying XMLPP would follow
a W3C subset of XML, if one were to exist.
Generally, it seems no-one wants to be thought of doing un-XML, but
don't want XML altogether. Maybe that's an unfair assessment, but I
am finding this confusing.
