I tend to think that merely replacing one syntax with another is as big a waste of time as is possibly: and I think one of the central reasons for XMLs success was it prevented syntactic distraction by Mrs Palm and her five lovely daughters.

XML suffers from a lack of syntactic forms to signal underlying types. JSON is useless for status-classifying information (along XML' s content/attribute/comment/PI quartet) and for mixed content, of course. So let's combine them, retaining their syntax, taking the opportunity to rid XML of big things it doesn't need now (DTDs, encodings).

I suggest removing these Less than and More than symbols.  I never <3 them.
