Yes.  That's the point I was trying to emphasize.    (03)

Nobody develops alternatives to good notations.  The fact that there
are so many variations is a sign that the edict to make the XML
serialization the normative version was a disaster.    (04)

People constantly say "Oh, you don't have to use it if you don't
like it."   But making the XML serialization the normative version
is a terrible example of a premature optimization in favor of the
semantically least important and most trivial aspect.    (05)

The first step toward a rational reconstruction of the Semantic Web
is to demote the XML serialization of the languages to a legacy
status.  Then sponsor a design competition for better alternatives.    (06)
