A Plea for Schemas
I have written a short "XML Rant" arguing essentially that the most
vital missing piece of the XML puzzle is the existence of a standard
schema language and schema repository (or discovery mechanism). Among
other things I claim that something like "archetypes" (it didn't occur
to me to use this exact term) could make RDF irrelevant, mainly due to
usability considerations. As it is a rant, it should hopefully drive at
least some readers into a frothing rage (I even included a completely
gratuitous swipe at the HyTime community just to make sure). The
document can be found at:


I would be very interested in any comments or opinions.
