Yes. From what I gather from Allette's Nick Carr, conference attendees
were pretty much
split orthogonally into those interested in multi-publishing (XML, SGML,
PDF, version control,
pagination systems, WWW) and those interested in Service Oriented
etc). So they split the XML conference into two with different
focuses, Open Publish and
OASIS Open Standards; the conferences are each smaller but attendees
report them as being
higher quality (for having less extraneous and vendor material, and
easier human networking).
