The panel does not seem to be on XML databases solely.
It talks about XML AND databases. Specifically, in the case of
XML and Relational databases, the problem spectrum might stretch
over issues like :-
1. XML Views of SQL data
- for creating messages directly from the relational data.
2. XML storage/querying in SQL databases
- complex 'documents of record' that can be stored and queried
in the relational store in their original form.
3. Extracting SQL from incoming XML
- extracting data and/or commands from incoming XML.
So, yes, XML might be used ONLY for interoperatibility but processing
XML within a system might require many different forms of interaction
with the database (relational or otherwise).
