As Donald Knuth taught us more than 30 years ago, "Premature 
optimization is the root of all evil in programming." I find it hard to 
believe that the conversion of an existing data model to a system's 
internal model is likely to be the performance bottleneck in an XQuery 
engine. I suspect this is true whether you use an LCD interface or the 
native interface.
