Which highlights that there are two possible objectives for a clean-up. One
is simply to throw out the things that are redundant and obsolescent (like
entities and DTDs [dodges rotten tomatoes]). The other is to redesign or
replace the things that everyone agrees were done badly (like namespaces and
XML Schema [what, no tomatoes this time?]).
