There is, however, libxml++, a C++ wrapper around libxml2, which is slightly more logical to use in C++ code, but it would imply an extra library. On the other hand that might function as a thin wrapper around the library.

Not sure what you mean exactly by "competing package" here, but there are strong alternatives to xml (e.g. JSON, http://www.json.org) that I haven't tried myself but are supposed to be very good for data interchange while at the same time being human readable and easy to parse.
