However I think we need to recognize that there is data for which XML was

and audio, to say nothing of scientific data (years of detector readings in
a neutrino decay experiment) is just not the sweet spot for XML

And companies that do a lot engineering work and must pass analysis files around could really do with a well-known-standard-with-lots-tools format.  These files are big, 100MB being on the low end.  The binary HDF5 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hierarchical_Data_Format has filled this role for many years in the engineering domain.  And has recently benefited from being selected as an international standard ISO 10303-26 (part 26)
