A more important question, which gets to the heart of the matter, is
who decides what is a graph, what is a tree, and by what means do they
make the interpretation? I think this was probably the point Michael
Kay was making.
I've seen all kinds of data, including graphs, encoded in XML, just as
I have seen such data structures encoded in ASCII.
