RE:  XML Technologies: Progress via Simplification or Complexif
So to point of view:  in Roger's case, by interation, 
he found he could simplify his design.   Is it really 
the case that what was becoming simpler was not his 
design, but his understanding of his requirement?

The essence of mastery is the perception of simple 
skill.  The easier it looks, the more effort was 
required of the master.  This is what is meant 
by the Zen saying that the master becomes the 
novice.  In the recent article cited from Chaitin, 
he noted how in a hundred years, theories would 
emerge that would take only a few pages to 
describe because the terminology would evolve 
to the point that fewer terms are necessary 
and so what was once complicated to explain 
would be simple.  Is this an advance in 
terminology or in understanding?
