XML 1.0 is not simple let alone very simple.  It's simpler than SGML and
binary formats but that doesn't make it very simple. CSV files &
S-expressions on the other hand are very simple. Of course, once you
start comparing XML to technologies like RDF, XSLT, XML Schema, etc then
it does seem simple in comparison. 

The only way to be popular is to listen to a lot of stuff that you
already know.
