If the data type really can vary from one instance to another, then you
might possibly need something like this. I would tend to use the XML Schema

 	    <key xsi:type="xs:string">aKey</key>
 	    <value xsi:type="xs:integer">101</value>

In practice I think it's much more common that the data types are implicit.
