   Yes. :-)

   We used "true" and "false" to follow the values from the XML Data stuff
   (IIRC). We shouldn't go and monkey them to use something else.

   And it isn't like we need namespace protection for these.

That sounds like a good reason to me for not changing.  And XML schema as well.

OK, that's another suggestion I need you to forget I ever made (:-).
