When will these be available? Publishing a document as an I-D is
near instantaneous, right?

Perhaps it's not time to propose solutions but to share experiences
and find out what's worked and failed. Considering the size of
the solution space, bounding the WG with a strong direction might
inspire confidence that useful technology will be delivered. Going
from "XML is good for encoding hierarchical data" to a detailed
solution is going to be difficult. The devil is in the details,
and in XMLCONF the details are legion.
