There are a few books around. I found this one helpful:

Designing XML Databases
[Two people have commented at Amazon and have differing opinions]

He describes several approaches to storage of XML in RDBs. I'm not sure if
that is exactly what you are after though.

For performance tradeoffs try:

D. Florescu and D. Kossmann (1999) A performance evaluation of alternative
mapping schemes for storing XML data in a Relational database. Technical
Report No. 3680, INRIA, Le Chesnay Cedex, France, May 1999.

D. Florescu and D. Kossmann (1999) Storing and querying XML data using an
RDBMS. IEEE Data Engineering Bulletin. Vol. 22, No. 3, pp. 27-34.

There are other benchmarks as well, which I have linked from here:
