Not a very knowledgeable article.  It repeats what 
has been known for a long time about markup based 
technology and which reflects what the experienced 
practitioners said from the beginning of the current 
generation of markup, XML.  Markup was 
designed precisely to enable this variation and the 
transform language to cushion the effects of diversity.  
Without differentiation, there is no competition.  
Without cooperation, there is no coherence in 
business processes.  These forces can and 
must co-exist in the same trading space. 

To  assert the environment converges on one or two languages 
is to misstate the goal and processes of information lifecycles in an 
evolving environment and to reveal a lack of study of the history of 
the applications of markup technologies.
