XML Processing Model WG

Stefan Tilkov,

Norm Walsh will chair the new W3C XML Processing Model working group, the task of which it is to define a standard language for describing an XML processing pipeline. Very cool! Even better is Norm’s attitude towards the whole thing:

There has been a lot of work done in this area. A half hour spent with a search engine and my mail archives turned up all of these efforts either about XML pipelines or directly related to them […] I want to figure out what 80% of the intersection of those languages is, write it up as a specification, slap “1.0” on it, and ship it. As soon as possible. Then I want to get support for that language coded up and into the Java™ Platform so it’ll be available everywhere.

Sounds like a great plan.
