In summary: Decide whether a language is for humans or for machines and do one of those things. And do the one thing well instead of both, but badly.
**Update:** This article was posted on [Hacker News](https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=26114863) and landed on the front page, currently it's on rank 3. I'm honored! [In the comments there](https://news.ycombinator.com/reply?id=26115086&goto=item%3Fid%3D26114863%2326115086) somebody mentioned an [interesting use of the `<script>` tag in SVG](https://www.xul.fr/svgtetris.svg). I'm unsure though whether I should be impressed or horrified :D

**Update 2:** Somebody posted this on [Reddit](https://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/livw57/svg_the_good_the_bad_and_the_ugly) as well. Currently, there are over 150 comments, wow.
**Update 3:** PEOPLE, PLEASE. This is absolutely not about "XML is bad, let's do JSON instead". I actually like XML more than JSON in total, I'm a fan of XML schema and nice strong schemas. I mostly wouldn't care whether a good format with a good data model was encoded in JSON, XML, YAML, binary, Brainfuck or monkey feces. The encoding really is the least important part. I just think that for a strictly machine-focused format JSON would be a better choice.
I guess though I should have anticipated that saying that I don't like XML and then mentioning the word "JSON" would start a religious war.
