I find it hard  to understand from your mail, where the gaps are as per
your  proposal?


.
   Yes, XML and related facilities do have considerable  capabilities for 
application development and the intent would be to build on  these.   
.
   However, they also lack fundamental features  that could be included in 
a declarative language, some of which are alluded  to in a related note here.
.
  More fundamentally, however, the evolution has led to  unnecessary 
complexities and lack of systemization.   If development focused on a broader goal 
of productivity for  application development, I believe this would lead to 
greatly enhanced  characteristics of generality, simplicity, consistency, 
ease of use and  clarity - all of which gaps could be remedied with some 
effort.
