Re: [xml-dev] Lessons learned from the XML experiment

Original Message From: "Michael Kay" <mike@saxonica.com>

No, I can't in this specific use case.  However, AFAIK there isn't a
published, standards track grammar for your example.

So Java is broken because there's no international standard for package names like org.w3.dom?

How come I didn't notice?
Surely Java is not broken because it has tools to support that 'convention'. XML is broken as far as this convention is concerned because there are no (widely available) tools that implement it.
