XML-APP and XML-NEW (Re: It's time for practical XML!)

What is happening now is just a part of growing pain.  How luxurious it is
to be complaining about moving too fast and too wide when most new
technologies have problems just being accepted.

What we need to do now is start two new mailing lists which aids and acts as
catalyst for newbies and application development:


A mailing list for people learning XML and product announcements.  I have
long thought that newbies and spammers complement each other very well and
not just in the negative sense.


A mailing list for people developing XML applications.

With above two additional mailing lists, we will have four tiers in the XML
development community:

W3C - for standards
XML-DEV - for implementation and incubation of standards
XML-APP - for application of standards
XML-NEW - for beginners and announcements.

I think this arrangement will go a long way toward relieving the growing
pain we are feeling right now.
