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.
