We will still accept votes on this suggestion. Please note that this suggestion is not for VBA UserForms. There’s a separate suggestion you can vote for if that’s most important to you.
Some comments on the other suggestion indicate that clarification was needed, so I’ve updated the titles and description to be clearer.

Please, add this back. To shortchange so many users of your program is a major misstep, especially with such an essential and useful function.
Thanks for all your comments and votes supporting this suggestion. We are in the planning stages for this feature to be added to Excel for Mac.
Thanks – Steve K [MS Excel]
We are glad to announce that the first phase of the project is available for Insiders Fast. At this stage we support refresh from text, CSV, XLSX, JSON and XML files.
Refer to the following blog post for more details:
I encourage you to try the new functionality and share your feedback with us via Send a Smile/Frown at the top right corner in your Excel for Mac.
We have exciting times ahead of us!

Thanks to everyone who commented on this topic. This is certainly an idea that we’ll consider, but in the meantime, I wanted to mention that if you can’t see all the sheet tabs, you can right-click on the navigation arrows to bring up the “Activate” dialog, which gives a scrollable list of the sheets, so you can select the one you want and navigate to it. I know it’s not exactly what’s being suggested.
As with other ideas, we’ll look to see how many people vote on this, so vote for it if this is an area you want to see improved.

It would be great if you can provide more detail about the scenarios that you’re trying to solve with XML in Excel, so that we have a better understanding of this suggestion.
