JAXP or EMF for XML creation, serialization and deserialization

I started in a new project at a large investment bank.

The use up to now XML beans to create XML complying to FpML with a generated API and then serializing it.

I of course suggested them to use EMF for this, as I do this for years.

They plan to go for JAXP which they claim does the same, and is more "mainstream" as it is built into Java 6.

Are there reasons to use EMF instead of JAXP for this?

Does anyone know what features of JAXP we are missing by using EMF?

Any input and suggestions are welcome.

I meant JAXB, not JAXP
