Don't assume that your use of XML and Java is the same as others' use of XML
and Java, or that the features you want to add to the API are the same as
the features that other people want to add to the API. We've been using JDOM
for quite a while are are quite happy with it.

It does when someone new joins the team, or you have to work with another
team that now has to understand the code, etc.
