Sure, one of the advantages of xml is that you can check that it is correctly formed before importing it while JSON is much more "free".
Interestingly enough I had to do some work recently deserialising some XML and the advantage was that it was fairly straightforward given the libraries available in .NET

My preference towards JSON is that I find it easier to read, if I am having to debug data, and javascript likes it.
