PHP has a number of problems, though:  the server needs to run the php,
which makes it vulnerable to any security problems found in php (and
they are plenty, and regular).  In addition, this means that all mirrors
would need to run php as well.

I don't think a server-side technology is any solution.

The other advantage of XML (if it were implemented correctly) is that we
could generate other formats from it.
