Simple enough that it hardly needs stating, but even when stated, it's not
going to prevent the occasional unhelpful posting.

More complicated. Coming up with a definition of XML-related topics that
are not suitable for discussion here would itself be an endless
discussion, and if I was looking for one of these specialist forums, I'd
probably go to xml-dev to ask for pointers anyway.

While this string XML thing looked pretty silly to me (after a fairly
cursory review), I wouldn't say "don't even bring that up here!" Nor did I
find Elliotte's response anything to object to.
