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

My hopefully last .01€ on this topic.
I do concur there is a great wave of people who are slowly realizing that rigid schema first methodology is a failure for a vast portion of data.   And they are running to something else.

Where I disagree is the from and to.   The from IMHO is relational technologies,
And the TO Is technologies that don't require schema.   To my eyes I see a lot of that being TO XML.   One of its best strength is NOT requiring schema.  If you ask $EMPLOYEER they will show you lots of charts with many digits of €/£/¥/$ associated with VAST amounts of data to back that up.  Including businesses of the largest and entrenched bureaucracies imaginable.    I have never personally ran into this culture being referred that takes schema=XML religiously although I won't dismiss that it exists somewhere.
But it's not the community I know.
So I will assert that I know of no such disease and honestly don't get what the problem supposedly is.
