While there are some brave souls pushing MusicXML as a distribution 
format, it hasn't really made a significant impact in that role yet. See 
for example http://www.makemusic.com/musicxml/music, which by 
advertising what's available makes it clear that it's not very much. If 
you want a particular score, you are much more likely to find it in PDF 
or in a proprietary format such as Finale or Sibelius.

Len, Amy is right to point out that you are being a little bit arrogant 
this week.
