Let's try to base our reasoning on verifiable facts. Fair enough and this is good advice for any technology selection but I dont think any of us is bringing up this because its based on idle chit chat, if you have data contrary to a vast amount of work going online, at conferences, books and yes maybe even in pubs be happy to see it. I would also add that we need to be very careful about what groups we are talking about e.g. enterprise versus web developers versus mobile developers, etc. I also agree we shouldn't have a crisis whenever an early adopter comes along with something novel or faster, but as I previously mentioned the real time web will demand ever more performance from the software that all groups of developers create, if XML (and technologies like XQuery, etc) are not keeping up in terms of the performance race we make it easier for people to choose other things. With Binary XML languishing where are these improvements going to happen with data transport ? James Fuller
