RE: XML versus Relational Database

Title: RE: XML versus Relational Database
From earlier discussions on this oft repeated
thread topic, there is a lot of experience with the mature relational
DB products, particularly in the area of index optimization.  But
you are quite right that most relational systems are now hybridized
to the point that the XML vs Relational DB is a non-issue.  
Horses for courses....

There are obvious benefits to storing data in a format that can be understood by disparate systems, and which is powerful enough to represent data from disparate systems. If the XML view of the world is the one that everyone needs when they unify data, and all your programs are moving things into and out of XML, why not just store it in XML?
