I think there have been numerous debates whether relational model is useful or XML, or hybrid (as we are discussing in this thread). One of the factors for choosing between the relational storage and XML is the need of normalization. For highly normalized data requirements, choosing relational storage is good (at the performance cost of joining tables). For denormalized data requirements, we can choose XML. Moreover, data modeling discipline in relational world is more mature than in the XML world. -- Regards, Mukul Gandhi
