I am reminded of stories of insider trading in which some retiring 
gentleman trumpeted overvalued stock just prior to cashing out.

As far as I know, you can hold that reunion in a rowboat and 
spell each other at the oars.  SGML didn't make too many 
folks wealthy (I can think of three but one already had 
money.)  XML might, but the tendancy these days is to 
make money on applications as the market for core technology 
is gutted.

On the other hand, domain name trading turned profitable and 
I keep wondering when the rush to conquer and own namespaces 
will begin.  In a document of interweaving hierarchies, it 
would be good to control the central threads.  Copyright law 
applied to namespaces... hmm.
