I think this is a grey area, still very much unexplored (but pretty much
abused, I'm sure). This also pertains to the status of XML as such, and
within XML, the status of XML instances vs. XML schemas, and within XML
instances, the status of documents vs. databases and the question
whether you can ever draw a clear distinction between them.
