If the XML is broken into subtrees, might that then add to the scalability
of this aproach?
Think about b-trees for a bit. Couldn't we develop analogous algorithms
for transparently managing the size of a fragment?
Anyone interested in doing a native-XML database? This would be a great
project for Open Source Software development!
