Generating Complexity: <xs:any> versus assembling building blocksversus XQuery

Hi Folks,

I had an epiphany. 

Here is my epiphany:

Nature seeks to express greater and greater complexity. So do we.

At the heart of each of the following three things is the attempt to enable users to express complexity:

1. The XML Schema open content (the <xs:any> element).

2. Assemble building blocks (the Lego pattern)

3. Provide users the ability to issue XQuery statements on XML documents.

Grammar languages -- XML Schemas and RELAX NG -- are fabulous examples of simple rules capable of generating dazzling complexity.
