As a significant participant, I have to agree with you there, and I'm glad to 
see a spark is returning.

That's actually what I had in mind when I first started writing this proposal, 
which explains to some extent why I didn't go into detail explaining behavior. 
 I've heard of a few SGML tools that do this - Marcus Carr noted that OmniMark 
includes something called DTD2DTD.  I think an equivalent tool for making such 
transformations in XML would be a great start.  Of course, we'd have to figure 
out what that transformation would look like, but that's all part of the fun.

Glad to hear it!  I certainly hope it grows, whether or not it has anything to 
do with this particular proposal.
