For me, I really like the notion of being able to write an XML 
document, not necessarily XHTML, which contains information to be 
gleaned using XPath and XSLT. Mixed is where it's at.

But I live in a world of code-heads. I keep seeing examples where the 
schema for a *document* is wrapped in WSDL and presented as a Web 
service. Code-heads expect to be able to turn a handle and be presented 
with Java or whatever and remain abstracted from all those nasty angle 

Whilst I might be willing to give up all sorts of bits of a schema 
language just to nurse-maid users of data binding tools into having a 
better time, I'm loathed to give up mixed given that turns my documents 
inside out.

Eric's Catch 22 is the problem here, and it's a crying shame the data 
binding tools don't make a better fist of preserving the text which 
surrounds the nuggets of data they're often only interested in.
