I said pay professsionals, Dare. Some might be
professional standards people such as are provided
out of ISO. Our results with these people have
been excellent. Some are professionals in the
domain and might even include some 'softies
if Bad Bill decides to provide. Certainly he
pays people to participate. Michael Champion,
for example, Jean Paoli was another.
Attitude matters more than pay but again,
I think it realistic to expect decent wages
for hard work.

Professional standards people? The XSD working group was full of them
and I personally think this is one of the reasons it was a disaster. A
bunch of academics with no stake in the success of the technology since
they weren't building products OR did not accurately represent their
constituency on thew orking group.
