I've seen the future and it will be.

InfoPath may become for XML, what the Basic language was and is for binary stuff. 

Thinking that technical knowledge about all the odd stuff around angle brackets and infosets alone will remain to be a sufficient foundation for a career or even a whole business may be as fatal as thinking in the 1980's that your x86 assembly skills will be enough to support your family for the next 30 years. It works for a few, it won't work for most. Ladies and Gents, it seems like XML is growing up and is getting all dressed up for prime time -- get over it.
