All domain-specific XML standard are kind of fooML:
So i'd suggest to keep it that way.

>>How about BIODDS - BIOlogical Descriptive Data Standard?
Biological Descriptive isn't very adequate here. Are we supposed to describe
populations ? genomes ? cells ? Just because bioinformatics usually means
molecular biology only shouldn't lead us to the same kind of attitude.

BTW, could people please use standard mail practice to quote only what is
relevant and insert your replies thereafter ? It makes long thread reading
way easier...
