So resurrect the SGML Declaration and enable everyone
to declare compact syntaxes for the application profiles
in the standard way. Why not have the compact syntaxes
interoperate as well?
If we are to brandish big pointy sticks, maybe they
should be standard pointy sticks. Or are all of the
arguments that led to the development of the SGML
subset suddenly moot in a trendy way?
From: Norman Gray [mailto:email@example.com]
Indeed not. I was just trying to detach the questions of compact syntaxes
for input versus compact syntaxes for the wire, and defend the former
against the accusation that it breaks interop. That accusation is a
big pointy stick that (it seems) tends to get brandished with great
enthusiasm whenever syntactical questions are raised.
