Why would he want to do that? I mean, Hibernate et alii are tools  
that are supposed to completely hide the fact that there is a non- 
Java persistence layer from the programmer. So what difference is  
there between using an XMLDB or a relational (hierarchical,  
object, ...) DB if I can't see it?

That aside, I think it should be fairly easy to hack something like  
that together using JAXB, all the heavy Object serialization lifting  
has already been done.
