If you look at http://www.w3.org/XML/Datamodel.html you see a description, but not, perhaps, a complete "data model" as a relational theorist would describe one. In other words, if this is placed side by side with a
"relational data model" we might not call both of them "data models".

So, what does constitute a data model? That is, if there were a complete
"XML data model", what would it need to have to convince the relational data
model theorists that it is, indeed, another data model?
