The way you phrase that, I get the impression you think that's a
terrible thing, or that I should think it's a terrible thing.

Don't get me wrong: I want XML/XSLT to grow and flourish. On the other
hand, I don't have to think Javascript and JSON are bad things. On the
contrary, I think they help to relieve the pressure on XML/XSLT to be
everything to everybody.

Choosing a technology is really just choosing which set of problems
you want to live with.

Cheers, Wendell
