χίμαιραλ (chimeral) - the Chimera Language

The name and the idea of this project comes from the  presentation given by Jeni Tennison at XML Prague 2012: I was going to show that XDM is a foundation on which the whole XML ecosystem is built and Jeni, giving her opening keynote just before my presentation explained why we should take care of chimeras, “ugly, foolish or impossible fantasies”. This made me realize that XDM, a data model that aggregates the XML infoset and informations items borrowed to XML Schema and now JSON is a chimera and that some efforts are needed to make it viable!

The first deliverable from χίμαιραλ is a XML serialization format for XDM documented has the  home page of this site.

The specs relevant to this project are:
