One of these days I'd really love to stop talking about what is and isn't
XML, though I know it's fun, and start talking about what we can do with
XML and XML-like structures, whether they are SAX event flows, DOM trees,
or binary formats that build on an XML foundation.

We might even get some real work done - and it might even be fun.
