I've got two 'pie in the sky' visions posted:

Building the File System into the File -
(slightly old)


Toward a Layered Model for XML -
(rough draft)

These move beyond XML itself to storage (repository possibilities, like
have been discussed here) and processing (SAX/DOM/parsing), but it's all
driven by possibilities I think XML opens.  

XML is not the answer to all the world's problems - it creates new
problems, that are awfully damn interesting to solve.  Sounds like a good
reason to be XML-obsessed to me.
