XSLT/XQuery processors can maintain the age as an integer rather than a string if they choose, especially if they are schema-aware. However, there's a large class of queries and transformations that access the average node less than once, and in those cases doing the conversion just-in-time, when the value is accessed, is better than doing it just-in-case, when the XML is unmarshalled. A high-level language of course has much more scope to make such optimizations; it can even make the decision based on its static analysis of the query - as is done for example with document projection, where the parts of the document that aren't needed by the query are discarded during parsing.
