XML is great, I would never trash it, but it doesn't meet all
requirements. I see the emergence of little languages developed by markup
people as a very encouraging, grass roots sign. 

Patrick Durusau's work on JITTs shoudl culiminate in the rehabilitation of
datatag and short references (little languages that parse!) and the LMNL
people seem to be playing in an overlapping space.

Content = data + markup as ever -- it's just that outside the marketing
departments and the committees the notion of what "markup" means is
becoming a lot more flexible.
