If I decide I want to put a new stereo in my car, wouldn't I have to
dismantle it, add the stereo and reassemble it in the RDBMS world? With
an XML DBMS, I just pop in the stereo.
Yeah, I think that's a fair extension of the analogy.
In addition, in the RDBMS world, if I need two cars (one a fast sports
car to get there quickly and another luxury to give me more amenities) I
need two separate cars. In the XML DBMS world, I can have one car that
I guess I don't see how that one fits. It's not part of the point I was
tyring to make, anyway.
