Shoot away. I deal with realities. XML is helpful
wherever the information is referentially complete
and snap-shot robust. The hard problem is the medium.
How well an archival technology works is directly
related to the model of the information from which
it was extracted and the lifecycle robustness of
the medium to which it is stored. XML Doesn't Care.

No-one has shot you yet, so we obviously don't have any professional
archivists on the list.
