I'm missing something here -- "translating messages" is pretty much at
the core of "data integration scenarios". XQuery lets you do that as
part of the query on a data source, and XSLT encourages more of a
message pipeline approach, I guess. Ultimately they have
approximately the same capabilities, and the same challenges .
