One simple concrete difference is mixed content... It's vital for most 
if not all doc applications and ignored by data apps.

As a consequence, it's very badly supported by most of schema languages 
(usually more data oriented), form systems (including XForms and 
InfoPath) and a bunch of other data oriented tools.

Tired to type XML tags?
