I hope you just mean this particular (mis)layering, not layered approaches
in general.  I'm hoping to finish up my essay "Toward A Layered Model for
XML" this week - the rough draft is still at
http://www.simonstl.com/articles/layering/layered.htm.  I've had lots of
hits on it, but very few comments back.  

If anyone thinks layering specs and layering processing is a good or bad
idea, please let me know.  (Off list if it's only appropriate to the essay,
on list if you feel it connects to important XML development issues with a
wide audience.)

Never really tried to speak Latin, though my brother did for one fun summer
in Rome...
