At this point I've largely left the XML universe in any case, except conversationally. XML spoiled me early with a smart and active community - there really aren't equivalents in related technology.

My hopes for a path forward in markup, though, are largely on the HTML side, rekindled by the slow emergence of Web Components and supporting standards. I suspect that those will do more to push the world toward markup than anything else we've come up with, unless they're strangled by the standards/implementer process.

Note that my use-case is more the computer-to-computer one, where the
