This is not true - turns out that I didn't coin the term :)

Re-reading bits of the HTML5 spec last night jogged my memory. The HTML5
spec uses the term "XML API" in the section titled "Coercing an HTML DOM
into an infoset":

http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#coercing-an-html-dom-into-an-infoset

Unfortunately, the term isn't defined in the HTML5 spec, but I'm fairly
certain that it is being used in the same way that I defined in the
previous e-mail.
