As a business case, your arguments make a lot of sense. That's one
reason why I don't understand how some people can claim XFO will never

I think HTML will outlast myself. Along the way, other formats will
join. I'm currently playing with an internal version of Opera that
does XML+CSS and namespaces. This was easy due to the availabilty of
freely embedable XML parsers (we're using James' Expat) and Opera's
flexible rendering engine.
