Dare Obasanjo asks whether the W3C might become irrelevant. My favorite quote:
For example, W3C XML Schema was created by unifying the ideas behind DCD, DDML, SOX, and XDR. This has lead to a dysfunctional specification that is too complex for the simple scenarios and nigh impossible to use in defining complex XML vocabularies.
I find this pretty remarkable, coming from the Microsoft program manager responsible for XML schema technologies in the .NET Framework.
