I would use the MusicXML markup in my document, and use a XSLT stylesheet
to convert these tags at runtime into horrible code in Javascript.
Then I would check whether the XML markup is used or not, and if it is used,
then I would advocate for its native implementation in browsers.

Typically, XSLTForms follows this philosophy.
