Re: [xml-dev] How Much XML Can There Be?

Hi Folks,

When XML first appeared on the scene there was an exponential growth
in XML production. Many specialty fields were spawned: validation,
transformation, pipelining, hyperlinking, etc.

Many areas show signs of internal exhaustion--for example,
grammar-based validation, or hyperlinking. It seems unlikely that
either will ever again produce anything that is both new and
startling within its bounded confines.
Uh..... hyperlinking was around long before XML. XML absolutely did not spawn hyperlinking.

XML's take on hyperlinking, while certainly more startling than what HTML does, was still really just scratching the surface.
