Note that this is just an abstract idea that came to my mind. I'm not proposing it for MB but just ask for a little brain storming. :) Perhaps I can code a simple version of it if I ever come to write a Java API for the new webservice.

I think of MB not so much as a website as a resource. Go create your Mike Portnay web page on your own server, but suck in the Discography information via MB web services. MB concentrates on the things that fit into its schema, which keeps it tight and reliable, while the XML web services format provides whatever flexibility you need.

Well it's not really a suggested syntax, more that you can see what I have in
