So why hasn't this been public? Why did I have to take a hammer to start a
discussion about next versions? Why are your own developers aksing "Why
should we start a new look?"

Now I'm really confused. :)

Why aim all guns at me and bash me when you've been talking internally about
a new version for a while?

That's a discussion that I started. Please by all means jump in. I'd like to
see Andy's ideas. I'd like to see all of us work it together to come up with
the best possible scenario.

I do have to say that callling it Xerces2 is premature. It should just have
a code name. It shouldn't have it's own mailing list. I should just be open
on the -dev list.
