Hey, Just for the record. I just found two alternatives that seem to be in active development, nexml (www.nexml.org) and RecPhyloXML ( http://phylariane.univ-lyon1.fr/recphyloxml/). nexml is supported by rOpenSci (https://github.com/ropensci/RNeXML), and both have C++/phython APIs that can be useful for R package development.

I still may try to get something done on PhyloXML since jsPhyloSVG, which I'm working on now https://uscbiostats.github.io/jsPhyloSVG/, only supports annotations in PhyloXML (it does support nexml trees, but I don't think it support annotations).
