One of the difficulties in adopting XML is that you need some sort of standards body, and lots of industries don't have one. I put together an industry standards group because nobody else in the industry had the necessary neutrality. You can gain a significant business advantage if the industry standard XML format happens to match your particular business offering and prevents a competitor from offering theirs. This is why XML standards need to be publicly debated by knowledgeable representatives from different viewpoints. They also need maintenance.
