A good case can be made for using XML "natively" to allow interoperability
with complementary tools, such as schema editors, forms editors, stylesheet
wizards, databases, search engines, format converters ....

The way I see it, supporting XML (and some XML API like the DOM) fairly
"deep" in your product let's you focus on what YOU do best, and let's you
acquire (by purchase, from open source groups, or by partnering) the
necessary auxiliary components from people who do what THEY do best.
