Re: XCond: towards an XML version of conditional inclusion

I don't see the need to have the dependency on external language processors and expression syntax. A special attribute XCond:include="Yes"|"No", whose Yes/No value can be picked up from an entity, would seem to do the job just as well. If you want to generate the Yes/No value using some external evaluators, I would have thought PIs were the right mechanism to do that. Also I don't see the need to specify it in terms of groves rather than XML documents, it might be more elegant, but it means you need to refer to another specification other than the XML standard.
