For me, the main drawback with ZCML is that WingIDE doesn't to auto completion on it. ;) An ZCML editor that automatically popped up a list of the supported keywords for every statement would be really nice. :-p
Actually emacs + nxml + the Relax NG schema (unfortunately out of date; it should be autogenerated from the code) for ZCML does that.
A benefit of using an XML format is that many editors will happily both do syntax high-lighting, some sort of auto-indentation, and automatic commenting/uncommenting. A non-standard syntax wouldn't do that.
Yup, and if you use some XML editor (or an XML editor extension for your favorite editor) it can do quite sophisticated schema-driven stuff.
