XML was originally designed as a markup language for information.
There are a group of people (I'm not one of them) who believe that
we've taken XML too far by applying transformation pipelines and
other machine centric approaches to what was a human centric format.

As I said, personally I think Cocoon is a good thing, and I don't
think we're 'breaking' anything (although I do think we have a long
way to go before we get it right). Anyway, work to do...
