Are you saying that it is possible (and relatively painless to tranform TML
to <other-tag-language>)?. Do you have any such tools ready built?

What's the advantage (if any) over XML?. I haven't used TeX in any
significantly angry manner since I discovered Word/PageMaker  ;-)

Perhaps but, it's all come to nought anyway. 

With the admin passwd reset issue and  the inevitable(??) loss of all
existing content, noone will ever get to see it and, I doubt he'll be
willing to repeat a manual conversion. 

Fun and games. Oh, the joys...
