Walter Perry's reported success using this technique for financial 
transactions on Wall Street.

As I've previously noted, this is in fact how web browsers do work, 
and have worked for a decade.

I haven't been following the ATOM/RSS discussions to closely (too 
much ego-bashing for my tastes) but I think that's a perfect 
environment for this approach. Ask a document for all the feed 
elements, title elements, etc. as needed an display them. If other 
formats or data formats become important add plug-ins, transforms etc 
that process them. Take what you want. Ignore the rest.   I'm not 
sure if this is the direction Atom is going right now or not, but it 
would work and be a lot more extensible than the current mess where 
vendors constantly complain about not being able to handle what 
authors send them, even in a very restricted format.
