Henry, could I ask you to list all the main advantages you see for XML-Data
over XML with architectural forms? Yesterday's traffic makes me think that
this would be a great place to discuss the issues in some depth. One side of
the debate seems to say that XML-Data adds no new functionality, and the
other says that it adds significant new functionality. At this point, I am
not convinced that I know enough to say one way or another.
