Sure. Company Z is writing software for a device with limited features, on
a system which has built-in JavaScript support, but little else, and
company X wants the technology to use XPath and XMLSchema, instead of
JavaScript, for its dependency tracking.

There is no way to implement XPath and XMLSchema in the device Z is
targetting. Thus, if X gets its way, Z cannot use the technology.
