And the reversibility argument.

Also, in that paper, one finds that the 'simple is better' 
position often used to imply inventiveness or smarter, is 
the outcome of the detailed work without which, the inventors 
who contribute by carrying the ball across the last two 
yards of a 100 yard drive can only punt.

The data/document divide is real, not to XML because 
XML doesn't care, but certainly to RDF.  Glushko needs 
to rethink his position as others have and understand 
that yes, to XML a document is a document is a document, 
but with regards to metadata, this isn't the case. 
Boltzman entropy is the measure of the messiness of 
the 'it's all just documents' position.  I have to 
recant(or) myself. :-)

so from a data perspective (and perhaps from a document perspective too) 
i think there is a lot to be gained by differentiating data from a view 
of the data.

but that can take us back to the data/document divide ;)
