I don't think you can pick a name until you have decided what it is you are naming. Several of the proposals in the xmllite proposal quoted above are just suggesting a profile of xml (don't use dtd's, dont use CDATA, ...) and for that "Simple XML" or "XMLLight" is probably as good as anything. However several other parts of the proposal involve making previously non well formed constructs well formed (</>) or changing the interpretation of existing constructs ( foo=" a b c") I think that for any new language that has such changes using a name that involves the letter sequence XML might be problematic.
