Well, people usually love their Mac because of something other than XML,
usually.  :)

DragonFly (and other BSDs) have an existing startup system that works
well, and there's no pressing need that I know of that a switch to XML
would fix.  That's probably why.  If the startup process was broken, or
XML made a significant difference in usage, then the idea probably would
have already been implemented.
