Is this flamebait? To set the record straight:

The entire RDDL design and discussion has taken place on the XML-DEV list.
It is an open, unmoderated list that anyone may join. I have tried to
include anyone who has comment on or made a suggestion regarding RDDL on the
list of contributors (if I have left anyone off, it is simply an error). I
have not judged the 'worthiness' of the contributions, though not every
suggestion has been followed. Even some of the, honestly, very few private
discussions that Tim Bray and I ever had regarding RDDL were often copied,
perhaps erroneously, or perhaps purposefully to XML-DEV. It is _all_ in the
archives. Please go back and reread.

So if RDDL has been too much politics it must be too much grass roots
democracy. What can I say, I consider this type of politics a good thing but
perhaps I am culturally biased.

Who is "they"? Instead of sitting on your duff whining about what you don't
like, why not make a concrete proposal? If you don't like the current RDDL,
make a suggestion. Provide some code which supports your proposal. Can you?

Frankly, I don't think you have the ability. Prove me wrong. Seriously.
