I think I agree with you, but I'm going to be a little pedantic just to
make sure. XML is a document interchange language. Data that is
expressed in XML doesn't have to be stored in XML files. You could just
as easily store the data in a relational or object-relational database.
In fact, several tools like this exist, such as Ozone DB.
