Nope. Alaric proposes solutions to specific instances of the general
problem of mixing arbitrary XML vocabularies. I don't think solutions to
the general problem are feasible and definitely do not think any of the
current discussions even point in the right direction to solving such a
problem on a decentralized network like the WWW.
Like I said I've bowed out of this thread, however I didn't want to
leave my position misrepresented.
