Like XML in general, they also tend to be verbose and noisy, and
difficult to read for a human. So if you want my opinion, I don't like
them much, but then I don't like many of the directions XML is moving
anyway.  I'll accept it as a lost battle, and move on. :-)

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
