I wonder if you could elaborate as to why?

It seems like a good idea to me.   I don't think you need mutable, 
cyclic graphs for much.   I do think you can build "OO" techniques on 
it, and other things.   One big advantage is that using XDM that way 
makes it easier for domain experts who are not programming experts to 
review, express needs, etc.
