RE: [xml-dev] An elegant implementation of an XML graph traversal

I think Roger was referring to XML documents which represent graph data, not
that XML markup itself is a graph.

Here's a trivial example

   <element sibling_ref="a" xml:id="b"/>
   <element sibling_ref="b" xml:id="a"/>

This could a valid representation of the graph

It would indeed be astonishing since the specification precludes it:
