Not at all James - I just think that different things become issues at different levels. I believe that everything we need to get (logical) documents out of a database, or from a file, to a parser, where - as you rightly corrected my previous post - that document becomes a 'physical' document, is already in XML 1.0. i.e., file -> parser, or database -> stream -> parser, or whatever other things people come up with. BUT, once you're 'inside' the parser, other issues arise - linking, filtering, fragments, etc. I think it's important to keep the layers separate to ensure the purity of XML as effectively an 'interface'.
