CHAT: XS vs. Kirshenbaum vs. Who-knows-what

I read a little while ago (someone's post) that Kirshenbaum IPA ASCIIification
went out of style a while ago on Conlang, but why? Pablo Flores and Mark
Rosenfelder(?) still use it.

Why is XS better than KB or any other system - why was it chosen? (Maybe because
XS was designed by linguists? ... But that's not so fair, 'cause XS is ugly -
numbers, punctuation... Well, KB etc. use those too I'm sure.)
