Even if we could avoid it at a technical level, it means that what
we're reading is no longer XML. One of the desires with ZCML was to
not invent everything from scratch. So, *if* we're using XML, we need
to use it as defined, otherwise it *isn't* XML. We're shying away
from what's invented here in favor of what's been developed in a
An alternate syntax could of course do things differently, but
introducing an alternate syntax just means there's more than one way
to do it. That's usually a bad idea. Philipp's proposal cuts more to
the heart of the problems with ZCML, and they aren't syntax-specific.
