Re:  Where is XML going
From all of the suggestions, I find myself asking why would anyone
change from JSON/JS to XML2/something? How would you convince the
browser vendors to accomodate  some new version of XML? Why is any of
this attractive to web devs? (if that is still the focus derived from
the James Clark blog post)

How do you get around cross domain security which includes different
virtual hosts on the same domain and http schemes (http and https)?
And you still need javascript to drive the transformations with
anything other than the processing instruction transform, unless that
would somehow change.

I would bet people outside the XML community would look at what has to
change, weigh the benefits, and say meh.
