   RE: [xml-dev] Is Web 2.0 the new XML?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

While I applaud the speaker's call to conciseness 
as the realist property of first cause, 
I oppose the nominalist Dogma of Clarity 
as being insufficiently defenestrated.

We assuredly will apply the existentialist  
Pragma of Implementability.  If there 
is no communalist consensus about that, we 
will refer this to the Subcommittee on 
Interoperability and Syntax and adjourn 
to the podicum for scree and trumpets.

Strike 'will'; insert 'shall'.

Sure. While we're up, let's use the RelaxNG specification as an exemplar 
and vote out any W3 specification not as clearly written and concise.
