I don't see a relationship between the proposed XML behavior and JFC's ideas.  Nor am I interested in JFC's ML stuff, sorry.

Lead users. As you do not want to listen and talk to them, some grassroots people have decided the safest was to reconsider the whole user architecture, back to the IUI and ML-DNS.  They probably are not on the same wave lengths as both of you? Don't ask me.

My personnal focus here is only the IUI and ML-DNS architectural, documentation and safe testing framework; and to try to keep some liaison with the Internet stratum. This is juste because the "Internet+" stratum is necessary multiservice menu synergy and access, to multilinguistic support, and to my interest in the Intersem.

I therefore only listen to the requests and investigate how the IUI could address them when the project matches my interest. I will know better once my I_Ds are finalized, a PLUS software architecture adopted, and some first prototyping achieved. Then IUI "slots" (smart local operating tasks) from projects will be experimented. Only by then we will know which projects have actually gone through and what they bring. You know FLOSS, it may take some time before all that preparatory process stabilizes. However, I have good hopes to see the things running in my old age.
