I think, XML information can be broadly classified as "document" and
"data". Your statement above mentions something like, "moving XML from
document specifications to ..." which confused me. The "document"
nature of XML is roughly (or perhaps largely) analogous to the HTML
standard (XHTML is a nice example for this I believe).

Other than "document" and "data" specifications, complete programming
languages have been specified in XML (for e.g XSLT etc). XSD is
another good example (mentioning XSD, since you wrote XSD in your
latest mail) of specification of a vocabulary in XML (though it's not
a language in a sense like XSLT. it's a validation specification for
XML data or documents).

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