DFXP will be an adequate format for interchange of existing file
formats, [they also have the same limitation (they are presentational
not semantic)], but existing file formats can already be interchanged.

 

But not by using a standards based interchange format composed from XML,
which, after all, was the initial assignment given to the TT WG to
solve. Some W3C members have expressed opposition to going beyond this
assignment, i.e., to go towards an AFXP oriented solution. The TT WG has
compromised by first focusing on the former, and then the latter. I am
preparing a 1st draft of AFXP to present to the WG during its upcoming
F2F. If all goes well, it will be published not long after. Current
plans are to write it as a delta on top of DFXP.
