If the markup that was on the web had semantics behind it wouldn't it 
improve reuse and other tools. For a more powerful search or 
additional capability, wouldn't XML in the title of a section be more 
important than in a paragraph or URL address? I've been doing some 
work with DITA lately. Many publications groups are starting to 
standardize on this set of DTDs and standard tags and 
"architectures". We then spend time converting these to a less 
structured html tagging scheme that is less rich and many time just 
used for formatting. If I could serve the DITA content directly it 
would be easier to produce our content for the web and it would be a 
richer source.
