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?
