How about "the people who are actually doing the work today don't
want to change to XML"?

I'm not very excited by hopes that all sorts of documentation manpower
will suddenly materialize if only the docs were in XML not SGML.  *That*
is the part of this argument for which no evidence has been produced.
Where are the people who know the code well enough to document it
but refuse to work on the docs because they're not XML?

(And no, Peter is not the only one objecting.)
