Looks like a good start...But you need to do a larger example with named 
and anonymous nodes, hierarchy etc. But overall, I like the idea. The 
stuff above is easier on the eyes than ANY of the RSS variants, even the 
pre-namespaces stuff.

Ttoo bad about the colons. The vertical bar is kind of non-intuitive as 
a prefix separator.
