Re: [xml-dev] RE: The String Datatype is the Worst Datatype EverCreated

More on Liam's point:

I am watching a future already beginning in which arbitrary natural language text is analyzed and handled by machine to the point where no human ever sees the text, or sees it only under exceptional circumstances. Why on earth would anybody believe that "data [only] for machines" should or can be limited to a small finite space?

no data for humans (or, relatively very, very little).
Increased computer/computer communication doesn't mean the human communication becomes unimportant to humans.
