Honestly I'm surprised when I see questions like this.  To me it
seems more likely that KML will eat the low end applications of GML,
stifling it's adoption but I don't see how KML replaces WMS and WFS.

Perhaps I fail to grok how KML will solve all the webs problems with one
simple feature format that includes a few representation features.
