RE: XML-formatted data can be incrementally enriched with more andmore information ... can data in other data formats be enriched? ... canbinary formatted data be enriched?

Hi Folks,


Thank you (again) for your outstanding responses.


I found your responses surprising. In a nutshell, you told me that many, if not most, data formats – both text and binary – are extensible.


XML, it seems to me, has always made it a point to advertise that one of its virtues is that it is an extensible data format. After all, it’s built right into its name: Extensible Markup Language. But now you tell me that, in fact, extensibility is part of many data formats. XML is not unique in that regard.


Isn’t that disheartening?
