Re: XML as generic villain

I've also seen many plans for using XML with hardware, mainly for network-hardware configuration. In principle, that sounds reasonable; however, the projects quickly get mired in peripheral details like schema processing, XSLT, or XMI, and thus are doomed from the start. I've often written consultant's reports advising customers to start with something simpler; I don't think I've ever advised anyone to make a project more complicated.
