Your case isn't convincing, though. Not many people would agree with you that CSV files provide a rich enough structure to serve as a replacement for XML. If you had proposed something like JSON instead, I would have taken your argument a little more seriously. As it is, I don't think you fully understand the problems that are being solved by XML. It would have been nice if people more theoretically inclined had reflected on these problems and proposed something more elegent, but in the absence of that, we're left with the work of the XML people. And it does work, it is useful.
