Do you actually know the internals of TeX?  Anyhow, there is little
sense in calling anything "LaTeX" which looks entirely different.
There are some XML DTDs that do something similar to what you seem to
want to do, maybe they will suit whatever application you had in mind.

There is a large variety of tools and material available about LaTeX
that it makes little sense to cast away for mostly cosmetical
reasons.  In particular, I fail to see a good reason to cook up an
arbitrary syntax that is neither LaTeX nor XML, when XML would
probably fit your goals perfectly.
