there is a definite removal date for std.xml in the docs now:

Will basic XML support be removed from libphobos entirely? Are we 
forced to use external libraries?

We use simple XML code in some D shebang scripts at work. It is a 
fine feature, that we never needed external dependancies, just 

Removing the simple but working XML code from libphobos also 
removes some advantages from using D for scripting, IMHO.

Having everything essential in libphobos and no external 
dependancies was a great argument for using D vs. using other 
popular languages and alternatives in the past.
