Neat stuff and a good article.  

The question is simply this:  does the fact 
that a source is XML raise the risk that decrypting or cracking 
that source is cheaper or more probable?

If the answer is clearly and reliably, no, there is no liability. 

If the answer is yes, then the characteristics that make it 
yes, (eg, signposts) are useful to understand.

If the answer is, experts disagree, there is liability and a 
real problem to be solved somewhere.  That there are costs 
is assumed.  XML posits that we all drive the same car and 
so will be equally liable.

steal someone else's car.
