That being as it may, I guess the "penetration" metric
you need depends on what you're selling.   If it is
developer tools, I guess you care about the percentage
of developers who are directly exposed to XML; if it
is network infrastructure, you care more about the
actual volume of data on the network.

The only hard numbers I've seen about the actual
penetration of XML is in references to the percentage
of enterprise network traffic that is in XML format. 
I don't have the references to the $$$ research
reports themselves, but I've seen figures attributed
to Gartner that this figure was about 2% in 2002 but
is expected to rise to 60% in 2004; and figures
attributed to Zapthink [maybe the source is the full
report described at
