He also makes a clear distinction between use domains that require full strength SGML (and can therefore afford to implement its use) and use domains that do not.  This is a key message: 
XML->full SGML represents a continuum of cost/value that you can choose any point along.
The only problem being that we lack the industrial experience
that would tell us at what point XML runs out of steam and you
need SGML extras.  I must say, that is one of the #1 	questions
I get at customer sites, and I just don't have a good answer
yet.  It's not easy; just because they're totally web-oriented
doesn't mean they don't need SGML, and just because they're
currently using the &-connector doesn't mean they couldn't
succeed with just XML. -Tim
