(unless you have headers and then you have to separate them from the data).... It doesn't handle sub-structure? Most database dumnps don't need substructure, though... There are better tools for handling XML, both at API level and at user/data level? Interoperability means being general, means being less specific, means in general not being the best for the job at hand, but good enough, but good enough for lots of jobs is sometimes better than perfect for only one job.
