Its interesting how the VoiceXML pushers have been able to create the 
air in some circles that VoiceXML is the norm for IVR creation. Its 
actually pretty hard to find people who have ever used it.

I think voiceXML has one big thing going for it - nothing else for IVR 
building has been standardised. Apart from that its really clunky. Only 
the most trivial examples look even moderately clean and readable.
