Category mistake here.  Try substituting "ASCII" for "XML" in that
sentence and see if it makes any sense.  XML is just a set of rules for
creating text-based data formats.  An extremely valuable activity, but
hardly a "platform," and of small relevance to OS design (it can certainly
play a role in the marshalling component of IPC, but that's just the tip
of the OS iceberg).

This is xml-dev, the mailing list for XML developers.
