Nobody knows for sure.

But I think usage has shifted from the trendy/cool/vocal end of the developer community to the serious corporate backroom space, which probably means it is making less noise but that usage is actually growing substantially. And it's not just for documents, where XML and XSLT are the only game in town; XML is still the workhorse for any data flow that crosses enterprise boundaries, and will remain so for many years if only because once entrenched, things like that don't change easily.
