Since James Clark is a member of the group, it would be rather difficult not
to equal James' own incredible engineering feat unless XML-DEV is a
government experiment on devolution of human brain. <g>

If we are to assume that each of the group's member make about 100K a year
in the average, 1200 members' collective expertise would cost around 120
million dollars a year.  Financial impact of the group on all of the
industries affected by XML now or in the future should be well over a
billion easily.
