I agree a 100%, indeed if you were to read various posts of mine about
XSDL you would no doubt begin to envision as someone with a fairly loose
grip on sanity, continually foaming at the mouth and raving that the end
times are nigh. Curiously enough this is how my co-workers see me nearly
every day. 

The problem that makes me so pessimistic is that because of the
overstating of business use many projects, governmental and corporate,
are coming along where XSDL usage is mandated. It is this which will
cause the ugly hacks I discussed earlier.
