But the Semantic Web will _be_ the Web - we're not talking about a 'new'
Web here, just finishing off the job with the existing one. Edd's article
makes the point that deployed technology (XHTML, XSLT) etc provide the
foundations for SW. In that light, a new list might innacurately suggest
some artificial binary divide between old and new Web technology.

See previous comment on www-talk, Web history etc.,
