What Liam said.

"(1) a level of interoperability not achieved with SGML:
    interoperability without human intervention,
    no need to edit DOCTYPE declarations or catalogs or SDATA
    entity replacements, no need to worry about normalisation support,
    or ommittag behaving differently in different parsers...

(2) a small enough profile that it could be implemented quickly,
    and understood easily

(3) a freely available specification"

Not to mention 

(4) Software
(5) Books and tutorials
(6) Reasonable integration with the Web
(7) Credibility :-)
