But this also embraces many text based formats (such as for instance
WikiML [1], CVS [2], the RSS text format [3] that I have proposed a
while ago and even the compact syntax for Relax NG). For specific usages
like these, there is no need to put the burden of the syntax of a
generic and highly extensible markup language on the shoulders of the
authors, at least when a mapping can be defined.

Did you know it? Python has now a Relax NG (partial) implementation.
