Subject: RE: [was] Today's meeting

Hello everyone,

I do not think that the level of interest has really dropped all that
much.  We have had some changes in participation, and I think that we
are going to be back on track very soon.  I speak to people on a daily
basis - who are very interested in what this TC is doing.  There will be
updates very soon.  

David Raphael

Hi Kevin,

It looks like the level of interest in WAS-XML has dropped significantly
zero, practically)

I personally have very little time to spend on it nowadays, and frankly,
I'm not
even convinced that XML is the right tool to describe complex
possibly involving multiple threads and multiple requests. It seems that
all we
would be doing is creating a new specialised programming language, with
none of
the flexibility of a 1st class language, and all the downsides and
of an XML document.

Maybe we were being too ambitious . . .
