I keep hearing the same thing, but also don't have anything concrete
to point to. I believe the XML spec has just been finalized or is
still in process. Debra Ruh, John Kemp, Michael Takemura, Ken Salaets,
and Aubrey Woolley presented a session at the CSUN conference on VPATs
and I believe it included information on this new format, so you might
try contacting one of them.
