I agree !
But ... to test the water, while I am technically interested I step and ask myself  "Why MicroXML?"
Is there really such a dearth of full XML processors that MicroXML has value over simply coding to simpler XML by convention ?
Noone is making you use the full (and ugly?) breath of XML in your documents - and (IMHO) Unlike SGML, there is a *plethora* of full XML parsers and processors available,
yea even in the Browser.

So ... partially as devil's advocate, but also to question why put so much effort into a new standard if simply ad-hoc subsetting of the one we have would suffice
"Why not just use XML ?"  Or for that matter, JSON.  What is the value add of a *new* standard.
