Well I guess the objection is that XML already has a data model for keys and 
values, so building another one on top is a waste.


<key name="XXX" value="YYY" />

...might be written:


The name=... and value=... is perhaps pointless when XML already has a way of 
associating a name with a value.

It might be compared to implement key/value pairs in Java using a List of 
Maps, where each Map has keys called "NAME" and "VALUE"... as opposed to just 
using a single Map.
