As far as I'm concerned it's not about a "business" case as such; however, without relatively clear goals and aims as to what a proposed new language is intended to achieve, it would be impossible to objectively determine what features of it are desirable or not. "Be more simple than XML 1.0" really describes the how, not the why.
