in reply to RFC: XML::Composer

Consider not putting it in the XML namespace if it doesn't produce valid XML. Data::XMLish perhaps? Either way, please put in lots of big bold warnings explaining why the module shouldn't be used generate valid XML.

    Actually, it can be used to generate perfectly valid XML and it's pretty easy to do. The main thing is that it trusts you to actually know what you're doing. So long as you have decent tests, there shouldn't be a problem.

      Sure, so can HTML::Template. And with a proper test suite it can make a pretty good XML generator. Does that mean I should rename it XML::Template and recommend it for use producing XML? I don't think so!
