Proposals for similar concrete syntaxes were discussed
during XML's development.  I'm satisfied with the result.

People interested in the idea of using S-Expressions
may be interested in an SGML markup language I defined 
a while back. The concrete syntax appears so close
to Scheme, that a document actually can be run by an R5RS
interpreter, yet is also valid SGML.
