the W3C's binary XML workshop on O'Reilly.
"There are at least two kinds of topics of permanent conversation in the XML development community: formally settled, and formally unsettled. In other words, members of the XML development community are perpetually discussing, on the one hand, issues which have been, more or less, formally settled by the relevant standards body and, on the other, issues not yet formally settled by the relevant standards body. As the canonical example of the first kind of permathread I tend to think of XML namespaces, which really are just here to stay, plain and simple. As the canonical example of the second kind, I tend to think of binary XML, which may or may not be blessed by the W3C, but which certainly engages the XML developer community in deep and fundamental ways.
