Has anyone taken a look at Microsoft's "updategrams" for XML?
>Updategrams define the structure of an XML document that can
>be used to describe a change to another XML document. The change
>is described by presenting what a fragment of the document looked
>like before the change and what the fragment should look like after
>the change. The before data is used to locate the portion of the
>document that should be changed. Enough data must be specified so
>that only one matching fragment can be found in the document. When
>the portion of the document matching the before data is found, it
>is changed to match the data specified in the after-data fragment
>of the updategram. This mechanism also supports optimistic concurrency
>control because if another user has changed the same portion of the
>document, the before data won't match and the update will fail.
