MSXML6 as Prerequisite for most of installations

I hate MSXML 6 !
When I run setup of some "Visual Studio 2005" family softwares I got the error "MSXML6 could not be install, setup cannot continue". Then, when I go to Control panel I see "MSXML6 Parser". If I try to UNINSTALL it says "This action can be ... only for installed components" ... What the ?
Then a veeeryyyy useful post comes to be the only one that helped:
Aaron Stebner's WebLog.
For fast issue - first try: setup.exe /NO_BSLN_CHECK
It works on almost every Visual Studio family products, but unfortunately it does not work on SQL Server family products ...
So another workaround should be found for the SQL Family.
