My goal with the need for an XML spin to any solution we propose is
motivated solely by trying to facilitate broader acceptance of our work.

I think we are all in agreement that XML has noticably broader
acceptance than RDF.

today's email (to me and all daml contractors) points me to this url
 http://www.computerworld.com/storyba/0,4125,NAV47_STO69907,00.html

with the following headline:
GAO says XML not ready for extensive government use
(GAO is Government Accounting Office)

While the headline looks negative and thus shows XML still has some work
to do to keep its acceptance level growing, it does show that agencies
are taking XML seriously in that they are considering XML standards for
business partners and putting work into standards that hopefully
facilitate more acceptance.
