But someone who wants to do that presumably wants to support large structures. 
And since XML was only developed to allow documents (presumably small ones)
to be sent over the Web, there is no reason to expect that XML is suitable.

Instead, why not just develop a standard mapping language to relational databases?
That isn't that what people would actually be better served by?
