Why not use XADL instead? You could have (with suggested pronunciations):

XADL = any Xml Application Development Language (zadel), XUI = any Xml-based User Interface (zooee), XUL = mozilla's Xml User interface Language specification (zool), XAML = microsoft's Xml Application Markup Language specification (zamel)

Why was it important to choose the acronym XUL? Surely there were plenty of other good possibilities.
