XML5:  Re:  MicroXML
 Is Henri suggesting (and I don't want to say it is a bad idea...) that 
 really there already is a subset of XML implemented and in the field:  
 that subset of XML that HTML5 parsers will support? I think Henri wrote 
 "XML5" at one stage as a typo, but it fits.

 If that is the case, then all that is needed is to ask the HTML5 WG to 
 give it a brand name, and leave it up them (Hixie, big business, etc) to 
 figure out the details.

 If it is already in the ballpark, and if it at least has some concrete 
 rationale (which we are far from here) then maybe it is close enough?

 The last time the simplification debate took place on XML-DEV, it 
 distracted people from where the real tsunami of complications was 
 emerging (XSD). This time, perhaps debating on XML-DEV might distract us 
 from where the real simplifications may be taking place--the HTML5 
 effort, unsettling as that effort may be.

 Perhaps we should be encouraging the HTML5 effort to provide this with 
 the hope that the W3C XML Core WG can rubber-stamp it as a fait accompli
