We should have just one canonical format. I happen to prefer XML, for
reasons I've stated, but I would rather we settled on HTML than that we
decided not to choose.
I read what Paul wrote to be that the RFC-Editor should fund development of
a canonical format ASAP so we can avoid having a surfeit of formats. XML
is a great canonical format because it's easy to use XSLT to do most if the
heavy lifting in converting to/from any other formats, so most of us seen
to agree that the canonical format should be XML.
