why this? With it it means that the resulting files are not XML, so the 
new format couldn't use the various xml processing tools unles sthey 
allow a custom parser to be provided, in which case you don't need a new 
format, you could presumably hook up a json 9or html5) parser that 
reported xml sax events.

Without it, it's a variant in the usual simplifications going back to 
sml (if not before) the usual reason that nothing actually happens is 
that while it's easy to agree that a simplification would be good, it's 
a lot harder to agree on the details 9as this message shows:-)
