This may be writing it off too quickly; I think the great advantage of XML for 
a data warehouse would be its ability to ease the inclusion of non-relational 
data.  A data warehouse that was capable of dealing with information in 
multiple formats might well take advantage of XML for storing data that wasn't 
necessarily in a table.  Data warehousing meets document management: love 
match or endless feud?
