Re: [xml-dev] Convention versus standard

I think another implicit quality of convention is that it is something
that is arrived at over a time-period, if you argue that something is
a convention, that is to say <emphasize>established</emphasize> by
common practice, then it follows with good enough analysis of the
communications of that community that you should be able to track when
practices that are propounded as best by leading members of the
community move to a state of being conventional.
