Kurt Cagle makes some interesting comments in his XML.com article, Understanding XML: Making Models and Watching for Swans. One that jumps out: “As more of the burden of modeling systems falls into the lap of XML specialists (and it definitely is), this is driving those same specialists to become experts not just in the mechanics of XML (such as validating XML against schemas or transforming it with XSLTs) but increasingly the semantics of modeling real-life processes – or of at least serving to train up those people that do.” That’s one reason why many content professionals would benefit from a deeper understanding of ontologies, taxonomies, and the politics of naming content components.
