I'm happy to report that in my meager experience, context shapes
cognition.  Language is one part of it, but there's plenty more.  Tools
(the start of this thread), culture, experience, etc.

No need to favor any of them, no need to privilege abstract logic beyond
stupid brain tricks.  Come one, come all.

And hmmm... maybe XML's heavy use of context is reasonable, at that.
