No. The tree is in the eye of the parser which in turn is in the eye of the 
XML 1.0 grammar production rules.

I have an OS supplied copy command that treats my XML as a series of 512 
byte blocks:-)

It is the XML parser that attempts to map the UnicodeWithAngleBrackets to 
the productions
in XML 1.0. Those productions form a tree rooted at production [1].
