I like it, very much.  Fits well with my earlier "CSS, XSL, and an RDF-like
approach" piece that I think was just too wacky for folks to be interested.
Abolishing the element/attribute distinction might make it easier to split
the different between CSS and XSL, but I don't think it'll happen any time

I'm just writing too much, and will be all weekend.  Someday we'll use
delimiters that don't require use of the SHIFT key on a US keyboard, and
I'll be much happier.
