Re: [xml-dev] "Introducing MicroXML, Part 1: Explore the basic principlesof MicroXML"

 >Here is where I think you will find the crux of the disagreement.

Indeed. The question is whether hyperlinks belong in layer 6 or layer 7. 
The core XML specification belongs in layer 6, and should not be 
polluted with stuff that has layer 7 semantics (like xml;lang). Of 
course, XML browsers are free to recognize the layer 7 semantics of 
particular namespaces if they choose.

I think the hyperlinking community has never been prepared to make a 
proper separation between the information content of a link and its 
presentation semantics. That is why it is has been so hard to integrate 
hyperlinks into XML, which requires that separation.
