I'm afraid I disagree. Sure the XML syntax has plenty of limits but:-

a) The really simple things were really simple
b) Its use of XML syntax added credence to all the hype about XML
c) It had the "look and feel" of a database "query by example" and
people understood it almost as soon as they saw it.

The XML syntax was a great "on-ramp" to the world of XML rendering and
transformation. I am personally disappointed to see it go for these
