What would be neat is if Google, upon encountering XML documents, then got 
link information from them (using as many ways of putting links into XML as 
they feel like implementing - or just using a regexp to look up any attribute 
content that looks like a URL) to continue the spider, while also indexing 
the XML such that one can put XPath queries into Google.

Eg, if we wanted to find defining the term "babble" we could hunt down some 
DocBook with:

//glossentry/acronym = 'babble'

Wasn't this what XML replacing HTML was supposed to be for? Nobody seems to 
have tried implementing it yet. With a piece of infrastructure like that in 
place, I think we'd be a long way towards a semantic web.
