Your points about syntactic unification vs. "diversity" (snipped) are excellent. A key component, however, to consider, is the extent to which the language in question will be read and written by humans. Machines like unification, while (many, at least) humans like diversity. In my own use of XML, and relating it to an HTML-trained community, I am coming to question the extent to which XML is really suited to human consumption.
