Number of XML applications, of course, is not a problem, 
even without Biztalk/OASIS, that's what XSLT is for.
However when we talk about other kinds of standards
like XLink, XPath, XSchema, X...,
sprouting out as mushrooms after the rain, it may be
very well a problem. Looks like we got a new paradygm
of programming in XML and now trying to fit in all
the von Neuman/structured/OOP programming developed for 
about 40 years. Good example - XSchema/XSD vs. IDL.

And don't say that all these languages has a good reason
to be, sure they have! It's just that we build a parallel
universe, instead of improving existing one. And building 
parallel universes has some intrinsic dangers.
