Yes we should do that.
Now the problem with the xml package is not even that.
If we include package like that then for example each time a project like moose which use it wants to use 
the latest version (it will happen during at least 6 months) then they/we will have a problem because
the system may have problem to load (we got that situation in Moose).

So the SOLUTION is let people decide what they want to use. Keep PharoDev for tools not framework.
