Okay, I admit it. I wrote the examples at the beach. I tend to be the kind
of person who prefers to see content stored as text - empty elements as a way
of life doesn't fit the way I think about data. But for the most part, you're
right, and thanks for the suggestion.
I had a difficult time deciding whether to leave the examples in the proposal,
because I'm quite aware that the folks working on XML-Data have a lot more
experience than I do. I left them in there primarily to make it clear to
readers familiar with XML-Data that this proposal was _not_ XML-Data, hoping
that they would see that it comes from a different orientation (at least as
far as I can gather from the XML-Data proposal.) The syntax is less important
to me than the shift to a document format.
In the next version, the examples will likely disappear, at least for now, as
the document shifts from being a proposal to an examination of the
implications of such a model.
All suggestions for the next version are still welcome - anyone wanting to
participate in the development of this proposal is welcome to contact me.
