There's always TEI, Docbook, and others, including your own homegrown.
And there's always XSLT (and other tools) to convert those "down" to
[X]HTML.

As Rick Jelliffe put it in a recent post[1] on XML-DEV:

    XHTML 2 certainly seems to have a lot going for it.  There
    is a big trend at the moment against the 200-element-type
    DTDs for publishing, and towards smaller ones, and things
    like allowing hrefs more places and making the div structure
    nest (like ISO HTML 4!) properly, fit in with the current
    trends.
