The dangerous part of the 80/20 story is that people seem to focus on the minor losses involved in getting 80% of the capabilities, not the major sacrifices involved in reaching the 20% of work behind those capabilities. Most people still seems to agree that recent specs provide roughly 80% of what they wanted, with some significant variation. (Schemas and Web Services seem to be the primary places where people regularly say "That is a completely different thing from what I wanted.") The other side of the equation is trickier, but I'd guess we've moved up from XML 1.0's 80/20 (80/30, perhaps?) to a range from 80/50 to 80/100, which isn't nearly as exciting.
