Isn't that more than a bit stupid?  Databases are for storing data, not metadata.  Ask
Monty why he doesn't store data natively as
XML.  Short answer: it's stupid, unless all you ever want to see from your database is
XML-wrapped data and never want to see it any
other way.

The whole world isn't XML, nor should it be.  40+ years of working with data tells us that
you ALWAYS want to store data in its
simplest form.
