Xanadu has things to offer, such as resource mirroring, and maintaining a
document's history, doesn't it? And support of collaborative authoring
within the model?

But if the Xanadu protocol isn't a superset of http, and the Xanadu markup
doesn't fit within the SGML standard, I don't know what its chances of
success are.

What is the relation between Xanadu and the World Wide Web?
