I don't see it as a war. I fully expect the two to be compatible and 
translatable - preferably with XSLT? I would be very disappointed if 
this proved to be impossible.

In my view, the much more serious criticism is this:

"My viewpoint is that it is almost impossible to disassociate the 
interests of these individuals and their respective companies from the 
discussion of the pros and cons of these approaches."
