Re: Agenda for the TAG Teleconference of 14 February 2013

Since I can't make the call tomorrow I thought I'd put a few thoughts below.

Putting effort into this is unnecessary I think. The web will succeed
with or without XML and the web's architecture does not really depend
on it (and even less on weird hybrid syntaxes such as Polyglot).

I think this will largely depend on the application and its XML MIME
type story. E.g.

data:application/rdf+xml,<b xmlns=""

gives a green background in Firefox. Which seems reasonable if you
treat all XML MIME types identically. If you have a RDF browser and it
recognizes something is RDF, however that is defined, it having
application-specific semantics for the fragment identifier seems fine.
Just like some JavaScript applications do completely different things
with them.

I suppose there might be some relevance to web architecture here, at
least how it was originally conceived, but it seems fairly minor.
