No, I think it doesn't make much impact on that.
The TAG is (at least in theory) responsible for the Web, where I think
the assertions Tim's made have held up very well. Developers want
direct access to information, low learning curves, and don't spend time
developing specific protocols for their work. New formats over existing
protocols is as far as I think you can go and still have much to do with
I support ASN.1 for the cases where people are willing to go to a much
greater level of effort. I don't generally find ASN.1 appropriate for
the Web ecology in particular, though maybe it can play a role.
