Another disadvantage of XML versus Lua is that
XML scripting is cumbersome and cryptical. 
I've seen horrors like this:

<if> <condition><var="A"/><equals/><var="B"/> </condition>
<then><call function="print"><arg><var="A"/></arg></then>
<else><call function="print"><arg><var="B"/></arg></else>

Ok, the syntax of the XML script could be different,
but the problem remains the same. I'd rather write 
the following:
if a == b then print(A); else print(B); end
