As a significant participant, I have to agree with you there, and I'm glad to
see a spark is returning.

That's actually what I had in mind when I first started writing this proposal,
which explains to some extent why I didn't go into detail explaining behavior.
I've heard of a few SGML tools that do this - Marcus Carr noted that OmniMark
includes something called DTD2DTD. I think an equivalent tool for making such
transformations in XML would be a great start. Of course, we'd have to figure
out what that transformation would look like, but that's all part of the fun.
>I hope this idea grows.
Glad to hear it! I certainly hope it grows, whether or not it has anything to
do with this particular proposal.
