I am very sad that we never managed to get into a deeper discussion
with the Nexus community.

I met Wayne Maddison once and presented SDD (which tried to include
NEXUS in the analysis, and contains several aspects specifically for
phylogenetics),  but I can understand that given their rather separate
phylogenetic group, they find it easier to build very closely on the
existing Nexus rather than searching for a combined view of DELTA and
taxonomic descriptions.

If there is any chance getting involved I might try to invest time
into it, but Hilmar Lapps email was the first time I heard about NexML
being at such a stage at all. I just do not cope following with all
the development.
