There are alot of one handed manipulations where you may not have a perfect grip on the gun which may make it impossible for you to rack the slide of your XD.
In my experience you need far from a perfect grip on the gun in order for it to fire. I can get it to fire with just my thumb and index finger for shooting. If I loose any more digits than that due to injury idk what my options are anyway.

There are just alot of weird things that can and have happened during dynamic movement and if you have the chance to eliminate a potential issue that may occur with your hardware wouldn't it make sense to do so?
I wouldn't argue against that at all, it's sound logic. Course by the same logic we can say that any gun with a manual safety is a bad choice, same for long trigger pulls, exposed hammers, etc, etc.

Home defense, concealed carry, law enforcement, etc... If the gun is simply a range toy these issues have little merit and the XD seems to be an accurate gun with a pretty good trigger out of the box.
I see nothing about the XD/XDm line that would make me question its use in a home defense or concealed carry fashion, but to each his own.
