I've seen no evidence of XML becoming slower over time. (Note the 
comparative.) On the contrary, both Moore's law and improved algorithms 
and software have contributed to faster processing of XML. XML's a lot 
faster today that it was eight years ago, and it was fast enough for a 
lot of use cases then.
