Transmitting XML in a textual representation is not always a good idea.
When the user does the 'select *' query on an XML database, sending him
a 20 megabyte XML file that he will need to parse, apply an xsl
to and display in the browser is not the best solution. IMHO, the result
of the query should be shipped on demand, when the user is actually
at a piece of an XML file.
