Some years ago we witnessed the spur of XML frameworks that aimed to accommodate XML front ends for WAP enabled application. This trend passed as the “multichannel dream” faded away but I see this fashion forming again.
I have experimented with a “full XML stack” and found that there are certain benefits like the fact that you avoid the typical domain mismatch etc.
Will we see again an XML frenzy like back in 2001? I’m not sure…
