FYI, the OpenGIS Consortium is presently starting to address these XML
issues with vigor at both the service level (using UDDI, WSDL, SOAP) and
XML file formats for data (using DTDs and XML Schema for Geographic
Markup Language [GML], ArcXML [by ESRI], LandXML(?) [by someone else]).

It would be wise of THREDDS to participate in or align with this
