I read it all and decided XML couldn't even meet the challenge at that point
after 5 years of XML.

Maybe, just *maybe* RSS with some aggregator (web based or otherwise)
would meet that, a year or so later, for XML.  I wouldn't say it's a
brilliant XML
format - it's not even 1 format and you especially have to hold your nose
if you look at all the &-escaping and encoding issues.
