How to change that?

I suspect that, even today after the initial heavy breathing and
excitement has died down about JSON, the idea of JSON-native
databases would be appealing to a lot of people, even though
it's as meaningless in its way as XML-native -- the XQuery
products are mostly XDM-native, strictly speaking, just as
a relational database is not really CSV-file-native.

The importance of the distinction is the resulting perception.

So do we just need to blog and comment using newer, younger
keywords?  I see MarkLogic and Oracle articles about generating
JSON with XQuery, for example.
