Oh, I see; you want a conventional way of *embedding* XML in pure JSON,
as opposed to an *extension* of JSON.  I didn't realize that.  In that
case, I'd rather use the style in which

        <a href="http://example.com";>This is <i>mixed</i> text</a>


        {"#name" : "a",
         "#attrs" : {"href" : "http://example.com"},
         "#children" : [
            "This is ",
            {"#name" : "i",
             "#attrs" : {},
             "#children" : ["mixed"]},
            " text"]}

Verbose, but it requires only one parser, not two.
