I suspect that you need a term other than "markup".

Markup comes far too clearly from the concrete human marking up of 
documents.  Many of the failings of XML (and HTML, and other markup) in 
programmers' eyes come back to decisions made in support of that 
original critical use case.

Information or perhaps a new term definitely seems like better places to 
go.  Your abstractions seem more to head _away_ from markup.
