This is *a* data model. It is not *the* data model. There is no one XML 
data model, and there will not be. The XQuery/XPath 2.0 Data Model will 
only be the foundation for XQuery and XSLT 2. Many other developers will 
continue to profitably use other data models that better meet their 
needs. XML interoperability is based on exchanging syntax, not 
representations of data models.
