Adam Bosworth: Toward an XML programming language

An XML Programming Language?

From Adam Bosworth's current End Tag column, for XML Mag:

"We need a language that can natively support XML as a data type and yet can gracefully integrate with the world of objects (Java or otherwise) and can take advantage of the self-describing nature of XML by supporting querying of its own variables. This language as used by humans will look like a programming language, not an XML grammar."

I'm not sure what such a thing would look like. But I'm inclined to agree with Adam that XSLT, though usable and useful, ain't it.
