If there were to be an XML 2.0, one of the goals should be that any 
off-the-shelf parser generator can produce a parser for it. It's 
ridiculously hard to write a correct XML parser; it ought to be 
ridiculously easy.

I also agree with whoever wrote that DTDs, validation and macro 
expansion should be pulled out of the base specification entirely. Hey, 
here's an idea: what you see is what you get.
