http://code.google.com/p/xml5/ does have a specification (not complete,  
but the essentials are there) that defines how things ought to work. It  
also has a Python implementation of this concept. (This has been pointed  
out at the start of this thread...)

If you want to try things out you could use:

   http://quuz.org/xml5/play

(Please don't put any significance in the 5 by the way. It effectively is  
a superset of XML 1.x and Namespaces in XML 1.x that does not stop parsing  
when a violation of namespace well-formedness is found. XML5 was just a  
name I made up at the time, maybe not the best choice.)
