	The *language* that is used to specify bindings is specified in 
	an XML Schema.
Yes, but why specify the bindings in XML?
This is for an Erlang interface, so surely an Erlang data structure
would have been a lot more readable?

XML really wasn't designed to be human-readable (and by and large, it isn't)
or human-writable (and by and large, it isn't).

Let's face it, XML is just an over-hyped and absurdly bulky way to write
trees, and Erlang has better ways.

So what am I missing here?
