Very similar arguments were made 15 years ago when the XML efforts were
underway. "The SGML ship has sailed." That wasn't a good reason to
ignore the issue then, and it isn't now.

In addition, as I've already pointed out, browsers support all the
behaviors I've described, and XML already has -some- support in
virtually every browser. This is low-hanging fruit.
