XML's long-term contribution isn't that it solved data exchange 
problems.  It's that it made it possible for people to believe those 
problems could be addressed on some useful level.

JSON just follows that up by addressing a subset of those problems in 
another mostly useful way.

Both of these effects are primarily social rather than computational.
