"In my opinion the separation isn't the principle feature neither in
XML nor in Web Services." - Xasima
"I agree. It is one of the stronger myths about XML, repeated
everywhere and seldom examined critically as you are doing." - Len
"It's not a myth; it's a very useful and important part of XML. But only a
part, and not always required, as you noted." - Doug
It's not a part of XML. That is the myth. It is a design principle.
That is not a myth.
The tough part is principles in conflict: such as the Principle
of Least Power vs The Principle of Separation of Content and
Presentation. Let the parsing continue.

> But XML doesn't care. You do.
This started with a discussion as to why Web Services had been adopted, and
strayed into a discussion of why XML had been adopted. You seem to be
arguing against a viewpoint that I seem to have missed; I don't recall
anyone suggesting that XML had views on anything.
