I think so, ODF is a ZIP file (with different extensions) that
contain multiple XML files. I think putting an XML file within a zip
or a tar.gz file would be a great way to develop a new application
protocol stearing away from binary executables to text based
executables. One way to do this is by maybe adding different schemas
in the XML file to allow access to different DLLs located on the
system side. Actions can be added to different buttons and labels by
that XML file or a script folder within the ZIP file.
I will tell you this idea isn't the first experience i have had with
this type of programming. If you check out www.bindows.net the
far though. XML is a wonderful way to allow young developers to show
off their programming skills. There are so many technologies that can
be incorporated such as SVG and XMPP. Wouldn't it be cool to have a
100% text based application that handles instant messaging. Couple
that with something like XMLFO and there you go a PDF creator. The
ideas are unlimited...
