I made an attempt at this with my FtanML paper at Balisage two or three years ago.


Starting with a markup language that tried to combine what XML and JSON do well into a unified scheme, which could be described as JSON plus mixed content, or as XML with typed attributes.

Then defined a simple data model on top of this, and then a query language (I rather like the name, FtanSkrit) and schema language on top of the data model.

I think it showed that it can be done. But of course, the fact that something can be done doesn't mean that you can achieve uptake.
