Today I've found another new language (working draft in fact). It's an XML Pipeline Language.

XProc: An XML Pipeline Language, a language for describing operations to be performed on XML documents.

An XML Pipeline specifies a sequence of operations to be performed on zero or more XML documents. Pipelines generally accept zero or more XML documents as input and produce zero or more XML documents as output. Pipelines are made up of simple steps which perform atomic operations on XML documents and constructs similar to conditionals, iteration, and exception handlers which control which steps are executed.

An experience shows a process of language invention is an essential part of computer industry from the very beginning, however...

I must confess I must be too reluctant to any new language: I was happy with C++, but then all these new languages like Delphi, Java, C#, and so many others started to appear. It's correct to say that there is no efficient universal language, however I think it's wrong to say that a domain specific language is required to solve a particular problem in a most efficient way.

And now a question to the point: why do you need a new language for describing operations to be performed on XML documents?
