State Machines; IBM's XMI?

XMI is for documents that represent UML information. Of the various
categories of diagrams that make up UML, state diagrams look a lot like
FSA diagrams, which probably inspired some of their notation, but they
are used to diagram the relationship between the possible states of a
given class of objects. A more general-purpose FSA DTD shouldn't be hard
to develop.
