Point taken & agree.

Getting back to the original question however, it felt like Ted (as XML 
PMC member) came to ask us what this XML project needs to be, i.e. what 
the XML PMC should take care off. If everyone leaves and becomes a 
toplevel project (which I don't believe will happen), what will happen 
to the XML project then?

I'll think some more about that.
