Re: [xml-dev] Not using mixed content? Then don't use XML

There are other benefits to XML than just supporting mixed content 
(though I agree that is high on the list).  Would you give up schema 
validation if you didn't have mixed content?  Would you give up the 
information labels (element names and attribute names) that humans 
can use as clues to the semantics of the information?
