I would like to defend the Technical Architecture document on this point.
It says: "A mechanism for deriving XML syntax from UML models in a
consistent manner is a requirement."

UML is a vastly richer medium for modeling the semantics of business data
and processes, as compared with UML.  This is not a criticism of XML.  It is
just an acknowledgement that UML and XML were invented for different
purposes.  Deriving an XML syntax from a UML model in a consistent manner
means you *don't* repeat the modeling process; rather, you use the superior
modeling medium to model the domain and then generate the XML syntax
according to a well-defined pattern.
