They're also just the _wrong_ slice across a complex,
multi-dimensional design space, but that's _much_ harder to explain.
So, yes, I hope your kind of front-line arguments prevail but, behind

Give me some abstract data type standards to start with (and, no, I
don't mean DOM -- more like a set of lisp types).  And give me a
freakin' language, not DTDs and Schema (geeze, only one letter off).
We can build out the read/write variations from there.

But XMLers won't get that at all.   They aren't even in the same city
as the ballpark.  And their audience?  Pheh.
