But there are just so many of them.

How would you translate:

<grammar xmlns="http://relaxng.org/ns/structure/1.0";>

 <element name="foo">
  <ref name="bar"/>

<define name="bar">
 <element name="bar">
   <ref name="bar"/>


(it's just another example to show that the list will be so long that
the approach will be hardly practical)

Not only marketing.

You've been too kind in your article to compare WXS to a limousine. IMO
it's rather a big broken truck. And if you need to design a road for
sport cars and big broken trucks you'd better start making sure it will
support the big broken trucks, otherwise they will be blocked in the
first tunnel.

And yes, you can validate the road driving your Ferrari and pretending
that you're driving something 30 times heavier and 4 times higher but I
am not sure that your validation will be very sugnificant.

WXS book!)
