The number of times I've heard praise for AF on this list, yet
no one has ever proposed an updated version for XML. Did it
have big holes? Was it SGML only? Any reason why it's not been

John Cowan and Jeni Tennison have both proposed and drafted updated AF versions for XML.  And yes, both instances have been discussed primarily on this list.
