RE:  MicroXML
I'd write a parser for mobile devices that have slow XML parsers because
they have to do too much.
I'd write a parser in portable JSON so there's no excuse not to use XML if
you wanted.

I'm a little unclear about what MicroXML is intended to achieve. Is it to
define the intersection between XML 1.0 and HTML5, in order that both XML
and HTML5 parsers can process a MicroXML document? If it is a subset of XML,
presumably nobody would need to write a parser specifically for it since we
could use an XML parser.

What would you actually use MicroXML for instead of using XML? What use
cases does it solve?
