IMHO the XPath data model (also the RNG data model and the Infoset) are
more like "abstract syntax models". They abstract away a few syntactic
details, but don't introduce any semantics of their own -- they are
still couched in terms of elements, attributes, etc.
Even a refrigerator can conform to the XML John Cowan
