If that's the only reason, you might want to provide your own repository
that you then use together with the main Cygwin one.

That isn't the only factor in the decision, but since we already have a
bunch of XML libraries I'd personally ask what's wrong with those that
the new package does better.  It appears that the package is in
EPEL/CentOS7 and openSUSE, so that would tip the scales somewhat in favor of
including it in Cygwin as well.
