RE: XML should NOT be a new programming language

I'm with Niels.  

This has been tried several times in several places with 
the usual reply being "so what is so special about a 
pointy bracket".  ("Don't Shock The Monkey"). It can 
be done but why do it?

There are several good object-oriented programming 
languages that support lean parsing.  Why put a 
fat parsing language into the mix with all of the 
overhead of dozens of ancillary specifications? 
It seems like a good way to confuse people and 

XML:  the pine tree of syntax-unified systems.
