Notwithstanding how weird you may be, some people prefer a highly 
regular verbose syntax over a symbol-laden compact syntax and others are 
too orthodox to use any non-XML syntax. The former seems reasonable and, 
as it is highly subjective, inarguable.

If you took a poll, though, I believe that you would find that more 
people prefer the compact RNG syntax. There seem to be, for example, 
more published schemas in RNC syntax than RNG.
