What would the grove approach offer that an XML notation approach
would not?

I like the idea of a blessed XML expression of notations that are not
natively XML (XPath, SAX events, MP3:-). Blessing  XML notation
for these allows implementers to implement XML import/export
and allows integrators to join things together using their
XML toolbox for the glue.
