  Please note that I listed "the primitive language for content models" as one
  of the grave mistakes.  Validatability is a /good idea/ in SGML that is not
  achieved with SGML.  XML did not go anywhere useful with any of this.  I am
  continually amazed that people do not see through the crap.

Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
