I suspect part of that is also that using the bundled support is a lot 
more important for browser based applications downloaded from the web 
than it is for more traditional client applications. A library like XOM 
doesn't hugely increase the footprint or deployment cost of most apps. 
However if you were to use it in an applet, then that's half a meg of 
extra data you have to load every time you load the page. The cost 
calculus is just different for web apps written in JavaScript. I see the 
same thing happening with client side AJAX frameworks. Despite how hot 
AJAX is, these aren't seeing as much adoption as you'd otherwise expect. 
There's just too much incentive to write just the bare minimum of extra 
code you need on top of what the browser supplies.
