The serialization of objects and structures is a real reason. My guess is
there are more even though I do not know of them. But if there isn't, there
may be some down the road. I don't pretend to know every reason why someone
would want to use XML, but the fact is that this is valid XML 1.0 and it has
nothing to do with Schemas.
