Interesting ... more fuel for the "is XML a syntax or data model" and 
"should efficiently parseable serializations of the Infoset be 
standardized" fires :-)

I didn't see anything in the linked document about how it would handle XML 
with more than two levels of nesting under the root. Is that out of scope, 
i.e. that's the definition of "record form"?  Or did I miss something?

BTW, the patent on this will raise some eyebrows; I'm pretty sure the basic 
idea of converting back and forth between CSV and simple XML formats has 
been around since the earliest days of data-oriented XML, and an abundance 
of prior art could be easily uncovered.
