I don't think anybody realy wants to avoid XML compability.
As far as I remember, in the original SML posting 
Don was talking about the susbset of XML and 
I think the objective remains the same.  Right ?

By XML compatibility I mean that idealy any SML file 
should  be  processed by existing XML APIs and tools
without any pre/post processing of SML file.

However, if there is some *very* serious reason to 
break this kind of compatibitily, it would be very 
interesting to know why SML should get the feature
that breaks such compatibility  with XML.
