After some of my (as usual) rabid posts attacking
creeping featurism in XML, I have received a number
of private responses encouraging me.

Let's just say that some of these hold respected
positions in the standards process ... :-)

The question is: why everyone is keeping their
heads down on this topic?

Just a small comment from one who would
like to drive a stake through the heart of
the current "standards" process, and get on
with real work.
