RE: AW: [xml-dev] RFC for XML Object Parsing

One note I feel obligated to address, you called it "Brian's Approach".  I am "representing" this approach.  It was implemented by my team on a huge project.  I specifically remember that it was Gary Meyer an Architect from SAIC that proposed adding "UpdateTime".  I did have a lot to do with this design, however I could potentially be suffering from an enlarged ego already.  The tokenizer in XMLFoundation was implemented by Sean Rohr, the #1 development resource on my team.  I hope that by disseminating some of the glory and credit my ego may be brought in check.  I represent this design, I understand it fully, I implemented most of it. it's not all mine.
I don't know if any of you saw the TV commercial about the guy at Intel that invented USB, They made him out to be a rock star, like Bjarne Stroustrup is.  Honestly - yes - I see this as the biggest new thing in XML.  I believe it's going to rock the spot and I believe it is the ONLY solution where BigData meets XML.  The design works (great) however I know that what made it great is the great input that made it that way.  I value input.

> Gentlemen,
> I am not sure if such historical facts and details are really important in the present context. At any rate, what interests me is the relationship between Brian's initiative and current XML. And what strikes me is the following. The XML model defines the information content of a given document; a document is the content which it is, and any glimpse beyond the document is out of scope. In particular, there is no room for distinguishing between a resource and its representation, - resource and representation are always one. But Brian's approach, so it seems to me, would build into the information content of a document a statement establishing a relationship with a seperate instance of information content (the data referenced by the oid), assigning to one (the data containing the oid) the role of being an update of the other - assigning to both the roles of subsequent states of the resource which assumes those states, but is not identical to them. And this
