In my experience, ALL Large XML files are really collections of smaller files.
I have never seen a single XML document of any large size that isnt simply

That's certainly a very common pattern, but I've seen a few examples that don't quite fit it. For example, a database dump of 50 tables each of which fits the above pattern. Or GIS data consisting of large numbers of objects of a wide variety of different kinds. What does seem to be true is that as files get larger, it's rare for the hierarchy to get deeper.
