I really don't see the practical use of making Sasha (an
as-yet-unimplemented programming language for specifying
Novamente-internal procedures and knowledge structures) XML-compliant,

Pretty much, the use of a Sasha procedure to humans is only inside other
Sasha programs.... And, Novamente will not analyze Sasha programs as
series of text characters anyway -- it'll analyze them as data
structures (CombinatorTrees, CombinatorDAG's, etc.). Once a Sasha
program has been interpreted into a combinator tree, whether its source
code was XML-compliant or not is irrelevant, isn't it?
