Generic XML in custom formats on the web is generally a bad idea.
Only the desktop browsers have XSLT engines built in; many people
on mobile devices will be cut off from your site, search engines
won’t know how to index you, etc.

And your point is? This doesn’t have much of any bearing on the
language itself. I’ve never used it in that capacity, FWIW, and
I find it plenty applicable for my use cases.
