Re: [xml-dev] Serialization of XDM

I think this may be shifting the goal post. The JSON can be reimported 
into the XDM-aware tools. Non-XDM tools will need extra programming to 
cope with the unknown semantics and type annotation information in the 
XDM-in-XML dump in any case.

It has sequences (arrays) which was the problem being complained of. It 
can be exported into XDM and imported back, with minimal conventions. It 
has explicit types.

s/system for/part of a system for/

XML Infoset != XDM. Therefore a conversion is needed. Hence XSD and 
XSLT2 (not exhausting all their serried splendours by saying they are 
limited to this conversion.)
