The main contribution I've noticed is that he goes around the web saying things like "XUL is dead as long as it is tied to Mozilla", and then goes on to mention some other XUL-like languages (i.e. languages that have a similar syntax to XUL and, in particular, use an XML dialect to describe the interface) which are, as far as can tell, wholly incompatible with Mozilla XUL.

I have no problem with other XUL-like languages existing, but refering to them generically as XUL because they have similar syntaxes is a bit like lumping Javascript, C, C++ and Java together under the name 'C' because they all have an over fondness for curly braces and semicolons.
