The current set of XML standards is good, but it could still
use a bit more modularity and consistency. Whether you call it
XML 2.0 or FubarML doesn't really matter, however, something
will evolve where "canonical" *is* actually canonical, and
where the transformation processor spec isn't authoritative
for serialization, where validating isn't an integral part
of parsing and where "default values" won't get in the way
of in-memory representations.
