It stands a good chance.  People actually check the standardization 
before going forward.  Some also hang back waiting for stable 
implementations.  A lot depends on the value of the information 
to be marked up.  SVG will do well.  We will experiment with VML 
to get a feel for markup in graphics, then move on out with SVG 
when the timing is right.  

Considering that using markup for graphics used to be a killing 
offense, we have come a long ways.
