What an interesting idea!  Could we really do this?  Each paper would have
to have an editor, and hopefully a number of contributors.  The current
state of the draft would have to be accessible to all somewhere.  Just as in
the posts about SAX2, the editor could post key sections of the draft that
are being worked on, then post the final results of that section.  Because
this is likely to involve a lot of time, I picture these papers as being
short, compelling position papers on well-defined topics.  Otherwise it will
be hard to get them finished.

Could it really be published as coming from the XML-DEV list? Hmm...

Someone else jump in here, what do you think?
