Errrrr. No.

You started a defense of the primacy of data vice XML by listing things 
that can be done with XML.

I merely wished to point out that the things that we *can't* (or don't) 
yet do with XML (or any other publicly-specified data format)now, but 
might in the future, ought to be considered, as advantages to the 
argument in favor of the centrality of data.

So far as I can see, there's no comma missing. But feel free to add 
one, if you need one. I have lots: ,,,,, (if you need more, let me 
know, 'kay?).
