I agree.  Very important.
Have you considered the costs of
maintaining your proprietary XML processor over
that of one tested by millions of other people?
Has your boss considered what it costs to recertify
the software that has to interface with your XML
processor every time you release it?  Has the
spike in certification costs from your bosses' department 
brought him up before the Cert review board?  Have 
his customers begun to complain about the problems 
of getting changes to the shared document type 
which your bosses' department maintains 
exclusively because changes to the type mean 
changes to your processor which means a 
new certification of your processor and all 
code dependent on it?
Have you polished your resume lately?

In the end, deciding what subset of parser should be used for development is every bit as important as deciding what subset of XML should be used for DTD or Schema definition.
