XML Universe ?

 Has anyone thought about unifying all available XML documents into a
single repository?

This would provide many benefits to XML practitioners, and in general
could be used as an "XML data-warehouse" and allow BI for querying
and acquiring interesting and unknown facts about XML.

Examples of such queries:

 1. What is the maximum depth of any known XML document?

  2. What is the maximum number of different element/attribute names
of any known XML document?

  3. What is the maximum length of element/attribute names in any
known XML document?

  4. What are all namespaces used and what are they in sorted order by
frequency of being referenced?

  5. What is the longest chain (length of chain) of XInclude references?

  6. What are all XPath expressions used in all available XSLT modules
(XSLT is a kind of XML) -- and a variety of questions about the
complexity and syntax structure of these expressions.

 7. Similar to the above, but for XSD

etc, ..., etc.

Among other benefits, such a repository would provide for real-world
XML test data, when writing tests for a new XML processing
