For sure. But again, if there had been, say, twenty organizations
sending people to meetings, doing active work, participating, i expect
it would not have closed.

To get there today, it'd need to appeal to a broader range of uses... i
don't mean, it'd need to be able to address a broader range of use
cases, as it's already astonishingly broad. I mean, people not working
with XML would need to glance at it and say, Oh, i see why i want this.

Neither am i suggesting moving away from XML, but rather to open up
what some might call a broader communion.

Many of the Web people who were so hostile to XML have moved on, so it
might well be time for them to discover a new world - as Freg Goudy was
reported to have said, the old guys stole all our best ideas.
