RE: [xml-dev] JSONx sent to the IETF

XMLj is the obvious choice for a name.

Seriously though, I think this is good to be published.  I shyed away from
JSONx because it was copyrighted to IBM and I didn't want to deal with an
army of lawyers.   I dont personally like how JSON objects and members are
combined into one XML object, its not a "clean" mapping of XML to JSON,
plus it doesn't handle non XML character data well (say NUL's) ... but
overall I think its a good thing to have a standard then none in this area.

Cool.  What is not cool, however, is the name.  It is boring,
unmnemonic, ... in short, IBM.  Can it be changed?
