I'm not sure how the latter thread (ConciseXML) argues against direct
access. Adam Bosworth is arguing for better support for processing XML
in programming languages/APIs while Mike seems to be arguing for a
mechanism for serializing objects to markup. Both threads seem
complementary to me. 

A pipe gives a wise man time to think and a fool something to stick in
his mouth.
