[Richard Johnson] "Thanks for the response Marvin. I didn't necessarily mean that protools would adopt FCPXML but simply give it support. I'm not exactly sure how these things work and why Apple didn't simply release an XML that was already a standard and compatible with other software. Really though, I don't know much at all about XML protocols so it may not have been an option. "

There isn't really some vendor-neutral industry standard XML format for moving video/audio sequences around. Earlier versions of FCP used their own format as well, for which third-party tools had to initially add support. FCP X's radically different timeline structure would have made that earlier XML format extremely awkward for the new app, so Apple created a new one. Third parties seem to be lining up fairly quickly to support it. (Blackmagic, for instance, seems to be planning to support it in Resolve 8.1, which is due before the end of the month.)
