Yes, I’d concur with that. Same applies to SQL over XML. It’s something that’s theoretically possible but not fit for human consumption; only of interest to the extent that it might provide a lower-level interface for a language like XQuery to target. And even then, Microsoft’s attempts to do XQuery this way should probably encourage other people to stay well clear.
