Thanks to that paragraph i now understand heaps more
about views. I was seeing views as covering many,
if not all, of the steps in xdocs/TR/2005/WD-forrest10.html 
Glad it is more confined. That means we can do things
in stages.

I am trying to ensure that if views do have any
requirements regarding xhtml2, then these are
defined as early as possible. If there are not,
then great, it makes the job simpler.

Would someone please attempt to define
what we will discuss tomorrow.
