Well it's certainly not the problem in the 20 year time frame.  If
you're running some quantum computer with an optical / analog
reasoning layer built on top of it and it happens across an instance
of XML you can pretty much bet that the "rabbit trail" back to the XML
parsers will be a pretty well travelled path.

These days, with the advent of Petabytes in a trailer and data clouds
that can be rented for pennies per MB / year there really isn't any
reason to leave the data on some offline archival device.  Once it's
online the mechanics of access are pretty much irrelevant.
