It isn't fast enough when used wall-to-wall. I read
about tuning parsers, etc., but if I am doing that,
I am not using off-the-shelf COTS. So why bother?
I'll bet a beer: when we finally get Longhorn and
look under the covers, we'll discover MS optimized
the blazes out of some XML pieces by subsetting it
and being very persnickety about substitutions.
To be fair, for a lot of XML applications, none
of this matters. For applications for which it
does matter, we're on our own. That can be ok,
because as Rich pointed out, we get to choose.
As long as we are doing that, we may want to
use another syntax for messaging too.
Still, what will replace XML? What will it look like?
Is it hiding in the tall grass or is it laying on
the shelf at Sun? It's a fun question.
