Re: Types of Query Protocol

types of query
The only thing I'd add is that there is no requirement that these be
Web-based. For example, the XML:DB API provides a vehicle for sending
queries and receiving results.

It also seems that type 2 includes lots of useful things like QPath and
XQuery expressions, so it's hardly retrograde. In fact, non-XML based
query languages are likely to be a lot clearer in a lot of cases that
XML-based ones.
