More precisely:  I no longer think the XML syntax described in
the XCatalog paper makes much sense.  The Socat subset is
more interoperable and more sensible.

The main reason is that it's unreasonable, IMHO, to ask a
parser to recursively parse XML-XCatalog format while it's
parsing some other document.  Socat format on the other hand
is an easy hack.

I am still looking for someone to adopt my Socat and SocatResolver
Java classes, fix the remaining bugs and integrate them into
a framework.
