Ways to subvert the social agenda

 [Next]

  1. Control of standard schemas and namespaces by platform vendors
    • This is vendor dependence in another guise
    • If you propose a standard, your implementation will always be 6-12 months ahead of everyone else's
    • Platform vendors are a particular problem because they can optimize the platform for a particular grammar
  2. Incomplete implementation of XSL
    • Crippled XSL limited to tagset transformations (XML to XML)
    • This implies document delivery via a single tag set (HTML)
    • In other words, a return to the status quo!
    • Solves the data exchange problem but ignores the larger publishing problem and keeps users dependent on vendors
