I wouldn't say that, but rather that the minimum amount of processing 
model hasn't been defined after XML 1.0 and, to stick to my example, 
that Namespaces in XML has not been more directive.

I don't want to bind full applications to XML documents (that would be 
the end of the "late binding" which is the power of XML) but I think 
that nobody has wanted to take the risk of defining any processing model 
for XML after XML 1.0 and that we trying to maintain the scafolding 
which as been built on top of XML 1.0 with the few tools defined by the 
original recommendation!

See you in Seattle.
