David's list of requirements is very helpful.

Some basic questions:

Are we looking for an XML format?

 I think the answer is yes, and as far as possible we would like to re-use
 existing XML modules such as those in SMIL and XHTML

Do we want to include presentation attributes, or use something like CSS?

 I would prefer to use CSS. I think that at the very least if we include
 them, we should explain explicitly how they fit into the use of CSS - much
 like SVG does. I would prefer this format to be basically semantics -
 including the possibility of quoting, emphasis...
