That's the crux of the matter! A database is a document comprised of 
structured data. It isn't a database management system i.e., an 
application that provides services such as: storage, indexing, 
declarative query access etc..    (02)

XML is fine as mechanism for marking up structured data in a document. 
The utility of this process isn't optimal if the endeavor requires 
entity relationships and relation semantics to be discernible and 
comprehensible to human authors and readers.    (03)
