I toyed with this in the early days of Pyxie but (perhaps
ironically) dropped it because it was to far removed from
James Clarks ESIS notation!

The idea of a simplified XML that would be its own
canonical notation is an idea we discussed some
months ago on the SML list. I am very much a
fan of the idea of a line-oriented XML subset.

(My eyebtows are still singed from the
flaming I got defending the idea of line oriented
markup on the W3C XML SIG all those years ago...)
