XML standards failure?

PC Week's John Taschek asks "So why does anyone think that a standards body built around XML will work?"

Taschek complains that "XML's facing troubled times simply because it is getting more popular," noting the recent decisions of various auto manufacturers to create their own organizations for creating e-commerce standards as a sign that XML isn't in fact the "Holy Grail of unifying technology".

In Taschek's view, "The losers are pie-in-the-sky XML-indoctrinated organizations, such as the Microsoft-spearheaded and OASIS. "
