As I expect most of you know, XML-based schema have been created for
hundreds of different information domains, from sports scores (SportsXML)
to advertising copy (AdXML) to human resources (HRXML) data to financial
data (XBRL), and on and on.
The scope of the attached RFP for another client of mine describes a
project that demonstrates how XML might be useful in the licensing domain,
and the ambitious schedule illustrates how manageable such a project can
be. Because XML is so widely used, schema and tools based on XML are
readily understood and used by a broad range of users.
As a result, I thought you might find it interesting and provocative.
