My proposal for this:  "The canonical form of a MicroXML document is the
MicroXML document that" (etc.)

The use of "the" indicates uniqueness.

I haven't tried, but I think it would fit into the free half-page at the end.
If so, I'd be in favor of it.  (MicroXML is still smaller than JSON.)

It's the old, old story.  Droid meets droid.  Droid becomes chameleon.
Droid loses chameleon, chameleon becomes blob, droid gets blob back
again.  It's a classic tale.  --Kryten, Red Dwarf
