RE: [xml-dev] RE: Ten years after: what are the top 5 ?

This list is not a bad one (I guess you wouldn't consider "DTD" an xml
vocabulary).  I might add OAGIS as a contender for the top 10.  It has a
trillion dollars of commerce using it in the manufacturing, aerospace,
automotive, and chemical fields.  It isn't marketed well, so it flies under
many people's radar.  But adoption is everything in standards.

Why RDF/OWL?  Who actually uses it? (I have a perception of people 
adopting it, then figuring out they didn't get any extra benefit over 
using plain old XML. Which is not to say it must always be that way or 
that my perception is accurate.)

Also, the trouble with talking about the top-5 etc is that it can lead 
to a mentality that the purpose of XML is to allow standardization of 
vocabularies, whereas in fact it is just as much about allowing 
localized schemas: the ability to standardize on sector-specific schemas 
is a side-effect of the semantics-free extensibility.
