Yes, this was one of my concerns when raising the scoping issue - that
relevant work didn't get missed out simply because it happened before XML took off
so dramatically. A lot of the HTTP-NG work, both on protocol design and
the Web Characterization activity [1] serves as an excellent backgrounder
for XML and protocols discussion. For eg the way in which the protocol
design work was coupled to the WCA fact-finding work[2] seems
to me to be a model worth continuing, as it grounds design discussions in
a model of deployed Web practice.
