Uh, yeah.  That reinforces my point.  Microsoft seems to see XML as a
wonderful format for serializing object structures they control, rather
than as any kind of commons where shared formats are exchange.

No single part of XAML is about replacing particular structures, but the
project as a whole is a breathtaking land-grab with a veneer of tasty
XML openness.

On the bright side, they also seem to have discarded W3C XML Schema in
favor of WinFS, probably because there wasn't a "straightforward way to
adapt those technologies to Microsoft's purpose."

That one I can sympathize with.
