That rules me out then :)

That is quite misleading.  XML is a *data* markup language.  I'd much 
prefer to see something closer to the w3c's definition (see 
http://w3.org/XML/).  Something like:

Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a simple, very flexible text format 
used to exchange a wide variety of data on the Web and elsewhere.

Aside from that, it looks good to me.
