Re: Tree v. Table - A relational XML object model...?

But XQuery has already effectively done just that, and XQuery and other projects which incorporate WXS by reference seem to have colored the understanding of WXS datatypes--by friend and foe--to a RDBMS vocabulary. The title of this thread suggests how pervasive is the notion that an object model expression of relational tables is the goal. Given that, and my own prejudices, I would rather see such an object model used for populating relational tables on the output of an XML parse than for the XQuery route of imposing a virtual non-document-based, non-parsed 'XML view' over the relational tables.
