I wrote a survey article [1] a couple of years ago listing a number of 
real-world applications for native XML databases. I wrote the article as 
a way to determine:

a) If native XML databases were being used for real applications or were 
still just a toy, and

b) What kinds of applications they were being used for.

My conclusions were (a) that they were being used for real applications 
and (b) that they were generally being deployed when the data fit the 
XML data model and didn't fit the relational model.
