Until I got to this paragraph, I thought ConciseXML was a parody. Let 
me just say that I think there's about zero chance of this ever being 
adopted, either de factor or de jure. If the inmates ever take over 
the W3C asylum long enough to consider this proposal seriously, I 
suppose I might bother to explain exactly why this is such a horrible 
idea, but right now I don't have the energy to waste on refuting such 
silliness, especially when it seems obvious this will die of its own 
failings.

Oh, one more thing: is Clear Methods publicly traded? It seems like a 
wonderful short opportunity.
