Yeah, except that HyTime is more general, simpler, and easier to build
applications on. It uses less machinery to do more, and without
imposing unnecessary constraints. Also:
* HyTime doesn't confound interchange structure with the properties of
the interchanged information,
* HyTime is syntax-agnostic, and
* HyTime really delivers on the promise of re-usable software for
vocabularies, even when vocabularies are mixed together and/or
inherit each other.
Come to think of it, more and more people are finding themselves in a
position to appreciate HyTime these days.
