After XML Developer Days in Montreal, my head's been buzzing with ideas
about the prospect of a very different approach to XML vocabulary and
application development than the committee model that is typically
presented as the 'best' approach now.  It's part 'worse is better', part
'let users think for themselves', and part 'so how can we harness this
anarchy and make it productive?'

I'd love to hear what people think - I expect that many folks out there
will conclude that I've lost it, if you haven't already, but I really don't
mind.  It is a rough draft, written between chapters of a book approaching
deadline, so there are undoubtedly flaws, which you're welcome to find.
