RE: [xml-dev] Towards XML 2.0

I'd even argue for a minimum *without attributes* and without mixed content,
no DTD subset, no namespaces, and only UTF8 support.

A processor (parser/ language binding etc) for such a minimum would be much
smaller, possibly "JavaScript" small/fast,
and on equal footing with JSON.

It would still be "XML" (i.e. parseable by full parsers) but vastly useful
on its own.

Nor me... I think the absolute minimum... just elements, attributes
and angle brackets :)

That's the tag line anyway.
