Maybe I wasn't clear. Suppose I now write,
    <Book:Title>John Grisham</>
    <Book:Author>The Case of the Hidden Claw</>

How are you going to detect my error?

You might be surprised at how common this is.

If you want SGML-style minimization,
<title/John Grisham/ is even terser.

Better might be some way to map reliably from a custom format to an

<data map="foo.map">
%T John Grishm
%A John Clute
%G Biography

DSDL (I think, or DSRL or DRSL?) is/was a language from ISO to do this
sort of thing I think.
