I agree entirely from engineering point of view. However, there are times
when absurd notions are needed to get things going. XML must serve as a
rallying point, a waving flag, national anthem, a cure-all, an extra sticker
on the box, a true-blue hype of the decade so that the bull#$@# will be
spread evenly across the horizon and fertilize the soil for things to come.
Most things we take for granted now have gone through a great deal of hyping
as if going through a rites of passage. It happened with TCP/IP and it is
happening with XML.
