Semantic TeX

Anyone know of or interested in specifying a semantic version of TeX
that can be represented in XSD XML Schema format and then converted
into near isomorphic C++/C#/Java/TypeScript classes (and enums).

I know there are issues with TeX using lexical definitions that break
the syntactic and maybe semantic models, so converting from TeX to the
sematic data format and XML and back might need some special attention
in order to provide conformance.

If anyone is interested we can have a group conversation or you can
contact me directly if you wish.

I was looking for a flex/bison TeX parsing solution that dealt with
lexical based defintions but I cannot seem to find it anymore either
in my bookmarks or in my backups.
