Good point. Interchange across the time dimension is very important.
People who use a relational or object database for their day-to-day work
should definitely consider backing up a periodic XML dump, just as people
who use XML day-to-day should consider how those other tools can help to
make it updatable, retrievable, searchable, etc.
