XML Vocabularies in closed environments
Closed syndicates and would-be cartels need to resolve the same issues, so that their XML messages will interoperate.
It's extremely inefficient for each syndicate to invent the methodologies and tools for guaranteeing reliable vocabulary-based interoperability.
- It's also a net contraction in the noosphere of the syndicate. Where to find technical expertise? How to maintain it? Etc.
Enlightened self-interest demands that the same methodologies and tools that support open interoperability be used internally.
Vocabularies should offer huge advantages in efficiency and reliability.
