More options often lead to confusion and to more room for making mistakes, and the last thing you want is to get unexpected (maybe completely correct wrt the parsing/recovery rules, but unexpected to the data author nonetheless) results from the XML parser on the receiving side.
XML works extremely well as the foundation for a data exchange format,
I think the OData protocol[1] shows a lot of promise in this area -
admittedly this provides for both XML and JSON solutions.
