Peter,    (03)

I just glanced over the GSIX specification and was wondering why
you didn't use an existing graph syntax for GSIX. I've myself been
doing something similar to your work (ie., with Peter Becker had
even posted a preliminary XML Conceptual Graphs DTD last fall), but
am now basing the syntax in the Graph Exchange Language (GXL), which
I like because it seems to provide the essential graph semantics
but can be easily extended. Because I'm expecting to need a common
graph notation for a number of purposes within my project, this will
only require a change schema, not notation.    (04)
