Yes, of course - and thanks for the Turing test nod.  Of course I'm not 
referring only to documents I've actually seen, but to those of whose 
existence I'm aware.  Still, I'm willing to acknowledge that my 
perspective is limited.  I just think its worth recognizing the 
breakdown will vary across different fields of endeavor that use XML in 
different ways.  Networking hardware is one thing, e-commerce another, 
and document management a third; I think the preponderance of human 
intervention in these different areas will vary wildly, so getting an 
across-the-board measurement is less meaningful as a result.  What would 
the units be in any case?  Number of documents? Bytes?  Information
