As far as I'm concerned there is an XML data model. It's currently specced by the W3C and is named the XQuery & XPath 2.0 data model. 
It'sXML infoset based, meets most of the requirements of people like Joe Gregorio who want regex-able XML and works well for both untyped or typed data. 
The name is a mouthful, so I tend to call it the XPath data model for short although I've recently taken to calling it the XML data model.

This is at the core of why I've always argued that we *do* need a data
model for XML and we *do* need something like
common XML because I want my processing to be both correct *and* non-lossy
(high input fidelity).

Is that too much to ask?

Any I the only one who wants both?
