I'd go further. XML failed. We founded the whatwg in 2004 (Mozilla,
Opera, Apple) because the w3c was chasing a utopian, replace-the-web,
XML dream. We saw that going nowhere; we were right.
XML failed on the client and the web, but it's still used a bit here and
there, and it is used server-side and in Enterprise "dark matter" that
does not radiate onto the public web. I'm not dismissing those use-cases
but they've had to make do with a library (native code or self-hosted).
That's the current likely solution and Ecma TC39 can't really help.
