Micro xml is (presumably) aimed at situations where full xml support is
too much of a burden. Since web browsers already have full xml parsers,
adding micro xml _in addition_ would just be extra weight for little
gain. I can't see any likelihood (and haven't seen any proposal) that it
should be implemented in a browser.

There may be many apps (mobile for example) that are on the web where
the weight of a full browser implementation is inappropriate where micro
xml might be just what is needed. I may be wrong of course. If any
browser implementers _are_ considering implementing microxml let them
speak up. It wouldn't be the first time I've been proved wrong:-)
