Not sure.  They both had origin communities outside the W3C, XML
developed with little W3C interference early on, and the W3C has changed
relatively little of the cores of those specifications.  There's also
relatively little competition in those fields, thought perhaps MSHTML is
worth considering.  The NS4HTML flavor appears to have left the field.

Identifying the producer of a specification explicitly doesn't seem like
it should cause that much upset, and seems like a really good approach
to avoiding name conflicts without resort to URIs.  If the W3C is really
interested in asserting their ownership of a spec, it seems like a good
idea overall.
