You guys are great, the article is getting better by the day.  There's  
still room for improvement; this has the potential to be something  
you'd point anyone to who's just trying to figure out what this XML  
thing is all about.  I think the article could still use a little bit  
more intro/pedagogical/tutorial material; explain not just describe.

I'm starting to think that in the future, it will be an explicitly or  
implicitly recognized responsibility associated with being an expert  
in any subject X to have some responsibility for the care and feeding  
of the Wikipedia entry on X.
