Probably true, but all things considered, a 
schema winner would be good first that 
settled the issues of datatypes, architectural 
forms or protos, etc.

I am also hoping for clean Active-X 
tools that integrate with the common 
commercial platforms such as MS Access.  
Oddly after some years of SGML, I find 
myself building document management 
over relational systems, liking it, 
and wondering what I will do with 
markup systems beyond lifecycle support.
