On the one hand I agree with this -- why should these pigs be better than 
any other animals on the farm -- but on the other hand, as someone who 
wants to build higher-level facilities on top of XML, it's a real pain. 
"The nice thing about standards is that there's so many to choose from" 
was a complaint, not praise, and string.replace('standards', 'doms') does 
not make it any better.
