Has anyone looked at this recent (Informational) RFC?


Structured Data Exchange Format (SDXF)

"IESG Note: This document specifies a data exchange format and, partially, 
an API that can be used for creating and parsing such a format. The IESG 
notes that the same problem space can be addressed using formats that the 
IETF normally uses including ASN.1 and XML. The document reader is strongly 
encouraged to carefully read section 13 before choosing SDXF over ASN.1 or 
XML. Further, when storing text in SDXF, the user is encourage to use the 
datatype for UTF-8, specified in section 2.5."

Interesting to see someone shooting (what looks to me) in between ASN.1 and 
XML, though.
