Yeah. It is the US Navy MID come back. Nothing GNU
under the Sun, fella.
Anyone who opened a Win 3 era resource file came to
the same conclusion. One can mark up anything that
has names and named properties. It isn't revolutionary
and the only new aspect to it is that people are now
accepting a design that was derided and cat called
ten years ago. XUL wasn't new and neither is XAML. In
a medium and industry where ideas are not treated
scholastically, anyone can claim anything anytime and
the only fair process relies on momentum.
Welcome to carnivale. There is the roller coaster.

Now let's look what a button looks like in the
"revolutionary" Microsoft XAML thingy:
<Button Background="LightSeaGreen" FontSize="24pt">
Whow. Compared to the XUL version:
<button label="Calculate" style="background:
lightSeaGreen; font-size: 24pt" />
This is truly revolutionary and a bold step for
mankind. <snip />
