RE: "Introducing MicroXML, Part 1: Explore the basicprinciples
I'm not sure what the rule of least power would say about that, but from the KISS perspective, those seven attributes come from HTML, effectively, and if they were "burned into" XML, it would go a long way towards supporting the uniform interface in all implementations. For example namespaces capture the semantics the namespace designer says. Hypermedia affordances need to be simple, and reliable, hence should come with the language, because they are designed to support its #1 goal. For example, some people might like to put a URI template in an href, but that would not be technically correct because it should only contain a valid URI. Hence tref, which although does not come from HTML, might be nice for XML to put out there, since we have a newly created RFC for URI templates.

Hard to say. How about something like xml:href or uxml:href in the core standard, and then a separate layer with e.g. uxml:rel and such. -- Uche Ogbuji http://uche.ogbuji.net Weblog: http://copia.ogbuji.net Poetry ed @TNB: http://www.thenervousbreakdown.com/author/uogbuji/ Founding Partner, Zepheira http://zepheira.com Linked-in: http://www.linkedin.com/in/ucheogbuji Articles: http://uche.ogbuji.net/tech/publications/ Friendfeed: http://friendfeed.com/uche Twitter: http://twitter.com/uogbuji http://www.google.com/profiles/uche.ogbuji
