Based on our rough content estimates, however, we can see this file growing to over 100 MB easily.  The CMS provider says that anything over 30 MB should use the SQL backend.

Coming from the relational camp, this seems odd to us, and even on disk, hierarchically, it seems to make more sense to break up this single XML file into smaller files (per parent element) in a directory structure with an index.
