May I suggest that this discussion might be more productive if:

  -   "everyone" is taken to mean "I"

  -   "the majority of users" is taken to mean "my team" or "my friends", and

  -   "the vast majority of users" is taken to mean "people doing
       what I am doing or working in my environment"

One of the wonderful things about XML is that it is so widely used 
that nobody has a good understanding of all the places and ways in 
which it is used (meaning, of course, that I don't have such an 
understanding and I don't think anyone else does either.)
