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

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.

What do you mean by "implement" here, because as I understand the term *every* XML tool implements it just fine.
