	<!-- ... --> having a taxonomy of xml may help us to understand
what forms, and when are good for different problems. <!--  ... -->
	<!-- ... --> by focusing on well defined sets of xml structures
and their properties we can get the theorems to improve our use and
understanding. <!-- ... -->
	<!-- ... --> by understanding the properties and operators that
are valid on these sets we can then see the analogies to other
technologies such as
	relational models, markup, etc. <!-- ... -->

  In its five year-old evolution, XML has grown to be a fundamental
technology in the data/process integration domain in the Internet.  I
think, as Rick do, that it is time to produce an XML Taxonomy, based in
computer science theorems and best practices of software engineering.
This will be a formalization of the principles by wich XML will be
elegible to *fit* in certain domains (perhaps a definition of
integration with the relational model, similar as the ISO spec of
Sergio Rodríguez.
