Today I step through some Expedia forms to buy an airline ticket, or to
buy a book from Amazon. Tomorrow I write a Python program to step

That's why you want to concentrate on *XML message vocabularies* and not
procedure call parameters. You define your XML first to be coarse
grained and then define interfaces into your business systems rather
than generating schemas from your Foxpro or C# code.
