Re: [xml-dev] choosing sides

My approach to the business case is fairly simple.
XML is used by developers, hence a focus on them    A major advance in application development technology has the best chance of acceptance.
My view is that such an advance is readily possible, largely based on a comprehensive approach to simplifying and systematizing what is already in XML and related standards.  And with proper focus, this could actually  be easier than wrestling with incremental changes. 
Secondly, the interests of browser vendors focus largely on support for application development.  (see - Jay Patel - Product Manager at Mozilla  http://hacks.mozilla.org/2010/11/its-all-about-web-developers/ )  Initial support from at least one is crucial.
Finally, for W3C itself in all its activities, my view is that XML and related standards are already, or are rapidly becoming, top heavy.  Simpler and consistent foundations would significantly aid progress.

"A new version of XML, if it's going to go anywhere, has to give a
lot of people enough benefit to switch to using it.  So far the
business cases I've heard have not been very compelling." Liam

Do you think there is enough in your proposal to make, for example,
some of the major players, build a parser and other tools to support
it Michael?
