That is old news and keeps getting dredged up out of context ... I don't 
think the arguments are at all supported ... XSL-FO has been proven to meet 
many production requirements.

I wish people would stop pointing to that long out-of-date article.

Or ... bring up new arguments that can be appropriately debated ... I'm not 
claiming my view is the "right" view, but I do feel that 1999 view is an 
old view.
