Here are some, off the top of my head:

1. Need to work outside of a closed system.
2. Need to work across different hardware and software platforms.
3. Need to capture and save information snapshots.
4. Need to pass hierarchical information among components.
5. Need to have control over granularity of information.
6. Need to use information for different purposes.
7. Need to develop a single hub format for conversion.
8. Need to generate and test data easily (look how clear-text
   protocols like SMTP and HTTP won the world).
9. Want that cool web buzz.

All the best,
