Would mixed content suffice?

Data-oriented data can often be processed entirely with a "pull" model 
(XSLT or XQuery), while document-oriented mixed content needs to be 
processed with a "push" model (XSLT template rules).

I'm not sure I've ever seen mixed content used in a data-oriented model, 
but mixed content is very important to document-oriented information.

Does this help?
