The consistency of Xander gave contrast to the other characters, in my opinion. He was the normal one, the one without special powers. But he was a good friend, with nearly trademark loyalty, even under trying circumstances (like just having been rejected by Buffy).
My take on his reactions to Anya's death was that there was a lot of pain behind the quip, but it was also true to Xander's character. If you start out as a solid human being, there is no need for any epic journey in character. And, again, his character provided a reference point for the others, the ones who changed so much.
