Here are the issues I'd like to raise at the panel:

What problem(s) is XML solving as the protocol element for
carrier of distributed application semantics? How well does
it solve them? 

For example, does XML give you simplicity, extensibility,
integration with other software components, ease of
implementation or debugging? 

What are the alternatives to XML and why is XML better? 

Are there different ways of using XML in protocols (different
encodings of data) and what are the pros and cons to be
considered?
