"Just because an XML message is "valid" (meets XML standards) does not 
mean it can work with other valid XML messages, or that it will behave 
as expected. As a result, we're losing control of the hundreds of 
disparate XML vocabularies we've developed, the mountains of XML-ized 
data we've generated and the millions of XML-enabled software components 
we've created."

Somewhat wide-ranging and IMHO, not entirely coherent (XML as a 
branding issue?) but nevertheless worth reading to see what everyone 
else is reading.
