[xquery-talk] new adapters

  Might I suggest that you also consider Oracle as an XML native database?
  Oracle stores XML in a native XML type (XMLType), performs XSLT 
natively, supports native XML querying using extensions to SQL, and will 
soon support native XQuery execution. It seems unfair to rule out the 
Oracle database just because it does a lot of other things as well -- 
native full-text query over XML and formatted documents, ACID 
transaction processing, fine-grained security, etc. etc.
