Before you bet the bank, you need to make sure you are not
dependent on any part of the XML family of specifications that are
not complete, nor have a variety of stable implementations from different
XML will revolutionize the web ... but the key word there is "will".
A small company cannot afford to wait for a market to mature.
As one who has been part of a small company that jumped on a
technology too soon in the maturity curve (like Java 1.02),
I would recommend caution.
