  Compiled program ==> ML configuration file
  Interpreted program (i.e PHP) ==> included configuration file with
variables set

  For most interpreted programs I can't see any advantage in adding extra
code and processing time just to store the config file in a ML.

  I'm currently working on a class library/application framework for PHP
(similar to Delphi's VCL) in which I'm using XML/XSLT for the templates.
It's working great with development not taking very long at all. The two
main advantages of using XML/XSLT for content management that I can see are:
    1. It's easier to enforce a common look and feel on a site.
    2. It's easier to re-target content (different transformations for
different browsers).
