This was, in fact, my intent.  There's no use spouting (sometimes vague)
theory to developers unless you can back it up with some ways of getting
in there and implementing this stuff.  Furthermore, I also attempted to
show more routes than RDF/XML... XHTML, XSLT -- and XML protocol-related
stuff like UDDI that comes in from the "other side."

My article attempted to show that if you were attracted by the SW
vision, there were things you could do now to explore it more.
