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...
