You brought this already a couple of times.

Years and years ago (when I was still working at dff) we developed a  
xml based flow engine way before what we call flow these days  
existed. It was so horrible to maintain that we dropped it. Maybe  
just the lack of tools ...or maybe just the lack of resources writing  
those tools ...but I am still afraid when ever someone pushes into a  
similar direction. There was also a talk at FOSDEM about such an  
approach and I only barely could hold back to comment during his  
talk ...he was so excited and convinced about the solution. For us  
just a minimal flow resulted in so much xml ...bah! Make sure you  
evaluate it's what you really want before you go down that road.

Just my 2 cents
