RE: WSIO and Good is Better
There probably are wonks in DC who believe this sort of thing. They tend to be a trendy lot. But it won't work for reasons most who have sat around the hotel rooms for years are familiar with. The civil servants sit down to wait out the administration. Remember when we were all told to migrate to ADA and the waivers started raining down like holiday confetti? The base reason is that by the time a logistics group is through with their work, it comes down to real parts and assemblies, not the standards for them. The migration to online procurements, online standards, etc is well underway but not there yet. Force feeding through the top won't change the minds of the engineers. They will use a W3C spec because it is usable. len -----Original Message----- From: Rick Jelliffe [mailto:ricko@a...] From: "Bullard, Claude L (Len)" <clbullar@i...> > Sure as heck shreds the CIO proclamations for > W3C-only tech.

I wish that the XML.COM article on the CIO draft had actually included some references to the document. The article is pitched as if it means that non-W3C (presumably excepting ISO, formally) specifications are being blocked, rather than that W3C is being added to some favoured list.
