Thanks for the resource. To give more a structure familiarity programming
view. Making it it's on language, but also as a implantation language to be
use in either xml language that provide functionalities.

Plus I'm interested in Xqib( xQuery in the broswer), and furthering it as a
programming language:





 I have more resource if this struck your interest.

All in all, I just feel this would be a great add on.

I do not know enough (if anything) of it to understand its width or depth or
how it compares to existing XML-based languages.

have made it into existing specs. In the archives of the public and some
non-public mailing lists from W3C I could find little to no references to it.
