To keep myself from getting more confused, I am going to call it
business logic.  Something has to happen to every piece of information
within a message, otherwise the information isn't useful.  This
logic can either be embedded within the XML or can be spawned
based on the intelligent mark-up.  

I really think the business logic (processes built around the XML data)
should be separated. I can possibly see a separate XML DTD/Schema that can
handle the business logic and be linked to the information via XLink.
