Could this be because you're thinking of a demo on a standalone PC rather than one
executed over a network?
How about any app that works between tens or hundreds of partnered companies over
the Net? Say a supply chain management "system", where no single vendor/supplier
has the same software as anybody else - it could all be proprietary - but they all
talk XML (and agree on DTDs, or just specific tags & semantics, etc..).
The true value of XML, IMHO, is in its potential to become ubiquitous.
