It is always the case that ultimately the community decides. The interoperability that XML brings about is less an effect of the XML specification, than an effect brought about by a largish community of tool builders and adopters of XML (i.e. the people defining *applications* of XML). This is true of most specifications... they live or die by the community, and the interoperability benefits typically accrue from network effects.
