We could call it HTML, and the styling/positioning part CSS.

Yes, we could :) Except "nobody wants to code HTML && CSS anymore"™.
Certain level of abstraction is kind of a must nowadays.

Moving away from well known and well documented technolgies brings
another barrier in adoption.
This is one of the lessons learned from YCP.

Actually, YCP might fit 'well-known' and 'well-documented' criteria
quite well if you ask here on yast-devel.

On the other hand, if the target is to use something well-know beyond
YaST team, YCP doesn't seem to be the best choice, as you say.

One of the well-known, well-documented and heavily-used UI language is
XUL: -- XML User Interface Language.

But there are definitely other similar ways too.
