Dear Wendell,

Thank you for making me aware of this enlightening and entertaining paper*! I'm sure I will quote it often, going forward, in conversations about XML, rules, pedantry, etc.


* The term "paper", which actually refers to an HTML page, is an example for a change of rules, in this case the rather rigid conventions regarding conferences and their proceedings, that was agreed upon by all stakeholders: conference organizers, paper submitters, and readers alike. All are fine with the fact that there are no on-paper submissions and no printed proceedings (not even in the paper-imitating PDF format). However, they continue to call it "paper" which is, taken literally, wrong. So words can acquire additional, figurative meanings if the community agrees on it, and we should allow other rules to evolve just like language does.

P.S.: The rules for loading the dishwasher are non-negotiable.

The ethics are not in whether you follow all the rules all the time,
but in how you follow them and to what end(s).
