>I would hope so otherwise MicroXML will have to stay its own island like JSON.  In which case why even bother making it look like XML?

Exactly.  Simplify XML, via a profile.  "Full, fat XML" is still necessary, and useful.  Simplified XML could work where XML itself might not be a good fit.  What goes in the profile?  The minimum possible.  It should be backwards compatible, though, so XQuery and XSLT can work with it.

>I admit I have not kept up with the MicroXML "specs" to know if even <foo:bar/> is valid MicroXML ... let alone to consider
how it would be converted to XDM.

I think that just eliminating <foo:bar/> in favour of <bar/> would work.

>But this latest series of discussions has me interested.
