That depends ... I use CVS to track the changes 
in my XML documents because the documents are 
simple text, but it is not done in a way that 
marks up the document with the changes that can 
then be processed downstream by an XML-based process.  I just use diff.

Is that the nature of your question, a CVS system 
that embeds change tracking information in an XML 
document?   I personally haven't heard of such a system.

And which "track changes vocabulary" would such a 
system use ... is there a particular one you would anticipate using?

I wonder of Robin can comment on DeltaXML ... 
http://www.deltaxml.com ... I remember hearing 
that that tool marks the differences in XML 
documents, and it might do so with change markup 
in the documents themselves.  Perhaps it has an 
integration with CVS.  I don't know which "track 
changes vocabulary" it might be using.

I hope this helps.
