Interesting. The XML languages I work with are essentially object
serializations. The estimates above are close enough with one caveat:
processing an element doesn't mean doing anything with the result. That
is, given the namespace+name, I know how to get a value from an element,
but I don't know where to put it -- that is, which object it is a
property of. Except for the root element, that always depends on the
parent. This would be true of all data binding solutions.
