Showing first level comment(s)
I see some excitingly magical looking type "inference" happening though. That ruby code is sure that the value associated with Malaga is a lat/long pair is it? Not a temperature range, etc.? So, some very optimistic approach to types, no real way to validate content, and some quirky looking syntax (<key>: <value>, but also #<section>\n<key>: <value> apparently? If I have more than two levels?)
I'm not sure what this is for. I am pretty sure that those people using it are going to run up against a whole thrilling raft of edge cases...

Here, “cities” looks like a comment, but it is part of the syntax, otherwise this example code would not work:
# cities Den Haag: 52.069961, 4.302315 Málaga: 36.721447, -4.421291
The actual comment syntax is “>”:

If your aim is data representation, why not go for JSON, Lua table-notation or S-expressions? These do not need different syntax for sections, lists or field sets, but have very clear syntax for a few primary data structures, which you can them compose however you want.
