John, could you clarify what this "now or never" is about?  

While I support what XML 1.1 is trying to do, I have a really hard time
seeing anything "now or never" about it.  If there's no great rush to
implement, I'm not sure why there's a great rush to standardize.  James'
experience hardly seems unusual.
