Map Markup Language draft spec

Dear Maps for HTML Community Group,

I have drafted a rough specification of what I have been working on, which is what I call "Map Markup Language".

The essential feature of this format is that it is hypertext, which requires clients to understand some or all of the markup in 
documents of that type in order to provide an interactive user experience.  Quite like HTML, but for maps.

It is explained as well as I can manage in the spec: 

which is a web page made to statically reflect the content in the repo found here: 

More work is required, but community feedback ( collaboration!) is vital at this point of development.

I am anxious to hear your feedback / questions  or comments about the ideas (and examples) outlined in that document.  

I will create repos for the software which I for the example services, and in the not-too-distant future, I'll create a repo 
for client software that I've been working on for those services. 

Would love to hear from you.

Thank you!
