Because there is no Delphi "XML library". Delphi provides a small wrapper 
around MSXML (or some other libraries, I think openxml also works).

FPC is designed to be portable, and therefor this solution (relying on 
system specific third-party libs) is not an option.

FPC contains a 100% native XML library that conforms to the DOM standards, 
and which works very well since many years.

It should not be hard to create a Delphi-compatible layer on top of it,
but honestly: I don't see why you would want to do that...
