What XI stands for? Ir is it just apple being "innovative" again?

Apple just names it "macOS" for consistency (with "iOS", "watchOS", "iPadOS", and "tvOS"), and to be independent from further releases.The X in Mac OS X stood for 10, because it was a big leap from Mac OS 9. They kept on 10.x releases for years and years, until they moved to macOS 11.x in Big Sur, and Monterey will be 12.x this Fall.So, saying "macOS" is simpler 🙂
The "XI" was just me making up the Roman numerals 😄
