Not me.  I just do midi and MP3.  ;-)

Articles like this are to be expected.   XML doesn't care.

XML *is* overhyped and a bit overvalued.  Doesn't mean it 
doesn't work.  Just means everyone won't agree all of the 
time what to use it for. Industry specific schema's are 
fine.  More work for us.  More ownership for them. 

I saw a great XML script yesterday.  It used SMIL primitives 
and additional tags to feed a vocoder speech and a talkingHead 
3D file gestures.   The inventor calls it Wylbur.  Cool as 
all heck for an old hoss like me used to the hay of CALS. 
Fascinating stuff ahead as the artists begin to see the potential 
in namespace integrated languages for creating XML personality 
profiles for 3D characters driven by XML gesture langauages: 

Karma ML or just KarML. A horse is horse of course, Wylbur.

So, really, let them babble.  Unless you are one of those who 
has some kind of stock option rated by how many sites use 
XML, more people get it than ever, and by gum, they are 
enjoying it too.
