future of software
XML provides a mechanism for describing structured data. Information shared between businesses and software processes is typically structures. But guess what, documents are also structured as well. Documents also need to be stored, queried, indexed, updated and manipulated. Databases are good at this. So why shouldn't there be databases that store XML?

	Which opens a whole other can of worms.
	If, as some are asserting, XML is for interchange formats - whats all
	this about XML databases?  Since interchange formats are typically
	equally inconvenient for all parties (unless defined by MS, in which
	case they are particularly convenient for MS), and interchange data is
	typically smallish (bite sized) and fragmented...
	What is this crap about XML databases?
