RE: [xml-dev] Designing an experiment to gather evidence on approaches todesigning web services

I was not asking about the difference between the two approaches, I was 
asking about the difference between anecdote and evidence. It is 
interesting that my message, which I thought was completely clear and 
included a quotation from you;

> > There is no evidence to support one approach or the other. There are

> I do not understand the difference, can you explain?

Was not at all clear to you, as can be seen by your edit:

> > I do not understand the difference [between the two approaches 
> that were listed], can you explain?

There are probably some interesting lessons to be learned their, and they 
might be applicable in what seems to me the attempt to drive all ambiguity 
out of XML-related specifications. But that's not what I care about.

I am quite curious what is/are the difference(s) between anecdote and 
evidence such that you can blithely assert that one is not the other.
