I don't think you can pick a name until you have decided what it is you 
are naming.

Several of the proposals in the xmllite proposal quoted above are just 
suggesting a profile of xml (don't use dtd's, dont use CDATA, ...) and 
for that "Simple XML" or "XMLLight" is probably as good as anything.
However several other parts of the proposal involve making previously 
non well formed constructs well formed (</>) or changing the 
interpretation of existing constructs (&nbsp; foo=" a  b  c") I think 
that for any new language that has such changes using a name that 
involves the letter sequence XML might be problematic.
