Did I miss something? I have the June 99 WML draft sitting on my desk,
and while I haven't checked every detail, it looks pretty close to a
conformant XML app. There might be some problems with character encoding
and the XML declaration (or lack thereof), but I would hardly call this
"significant rework".
