RE: [xml-dev] what's missing in XML? What's coming?

What's missing ?


1) A Standard (or well adopted convention) for Serialized XDM so that programs may exchange XDM in addition to XML

2) Better support for XDM in XQuery and XSLT to allow the input 'document' to be any XDM value, and corresponding support in the implementations to portably read such data (see #1)

3) Adoption of the JSON Data model into XDM so that XPath/XSLT/XQuery/Schema can be directly used on JSON data

4) A standard/convention for JSON / XDM conversions  to allow #1 as  both input and output.

5) "Excel for XML" (or XDM see #1) so prevalent and accepted that it becomes acceptable to pass XML among business partners instead of having to convert to/from CSV or XLS.
