   I will continue using BBDB for now.

   BTW, which format is more popular, vCard or XML? There seems to be quite
   a few request in BBDB mailing list to use XML.

I dont know about popularity, but AFAIK the vcard format is much more
used than other XML-based formats: almost all email programs
understand vcard 2.1 (not vcard 3.0). I never found an application
using a XML-based format of vcards.
