RE:  ConciseXML arguments
1.) XQuery and XPath do not have anything to do with XML 1.0 syntax wise. Anyone who thinks there should be a relationship between the syntax of a data format and the mechanism used to manipulate it must have drank a bit too much from the Lisp fountain. CSV was around long before XML 1.0. 
2.) Really? 
 <key>I can be anything even <mixed-content />, amazing huh?</key>
 <value>So can I.</value>

	Out of the 50 email messages about
	ConciseXML, almost all of the comments
	have been of the sort:
	"but ConciseXML is not XML 1.0!".
	Although this is a true statement,
	how about any comments on the two
	key problems that ConciseXML fixes that
	are reoccuring issues across the industry.
	1. XML 1.0 is verbose and is not suitable
	   for many applications that people would
	   like to use it for.  People invent new
	   syntax all the time to avoid XML 1.0.
	   For example, XPATH, XQuery, string
	   encodings, CSV data, etc.
	2. There is not a single way in XML 1.0 to 
	   represent data fields that have a key and value
	   where the key can be any type and the value
	   can be any type.
