Re:  Status of MicroXML?
Thanks, James for the clarification.

Then as I argued earlier why can't XML users (current and "future --
who might need something like MicroXML") use a subset of the existing
XML 1.0 or 1.1 standard (which as I said if user's want they could use
only the well-formed layer, optional validation and/or processing
instructions and so on)?

I felt that developing something like XML 2.0/3.0 (which are discussed
in other threads by Liam and Elliotte I believe) to add and fix things
from XML 1.0/1.1, instead of inventing language and name like MicroXML
is probably a good idea. Perhaps the future XML 2.0 standard (if..)
can take ideas from MicroXML (i.e get benefits from it's use-cases),
and then users can use a subset of future XML 2.0 standard (to my
opinion XML 2.0 needs to be equivalent or larger in scope than the XML
1.0/1.1 standard).

Perhaps the idea of MicroXML looks like a language profile concept,
which to my opinion is fine but then IMHO we should mention that
MicroXML is a profile of XML 1.0, and not that it is an altogether new
