Re: [xml-dev] Stick with XML ... JSON is a minefield of securityrisks and ambiguities

Maybe relevant:

Sowa's law of standards.

Also, if Microsoft had added XForms support to IE things would probably have evolved differently, with XML and XPath being more significant today. There was no incentive to do that when they had Infopath as a product, now dropped. Now we have data-binding to JSON in the browser via Angular etc.

I still wonder if there could be a market for an XML based browser, not for web-browsing, but as an application development platform, an alternative to PDF even, XSmiles tested that proposition though.

Thanks for your commentary on my message.  In point of fact, I actually agree with almost all of what you said.  The only retort I would want to make is that JSON is here, whether we like it or not, and real-world products have to have some JSON story or suffer consequences.  Of course, that's a hack, but that's the short-term tactics we're forced to take.

I disagree. Because we agree on that.
