Re: [xml-dev] Content Assembly Mechanism (CAM)

after just a few minutes of reading:
CAM looks great to enforce subtle non-trivial validation rules in your schema.
but defining the structure of the document directly from a sample XML
structure sounds extremely low-level.

in XSD, abstract structures such as complex types, groups, element
defined by reference, etc. make the model to be (a little bit) more
high level than the tags names and structures.
on the opposite, in CAM, you must hardwire everything to the tag names
and structures.

i hope some people from CAM are around so we can discuss those points.
