It might not be obvious to you, but that was definitively clear for
my previous employer (BEA Systems) and more importantly
it is clear for my current employer (Oracle Corporation).

We can go into more details of why it is so but it seems like
an evidence to me. Just count how many companies are
implementing it, and how many universities are teaching it,
how many XQuery books are in print, how much the next generation
of the SQL standard will depend on it, plus the fact the all three
major database vendors will support it in the next generation of their
products, etc, etc, to get  a rough initial  idea of the current level 
  interest in XQuery.

Unless we are all wrong and misguided of course, that's also possible
