Are you talking about supporting XML as a new logical data type? Or just
getting the FDO provider to interpret XML columns as string properties?

Supporting a new logical data type in FDO has ramifications in API design.

- If FDO were to support and recognise XML data types, how does one work
with such types through FDO?

- There needs to be the possibility for other providers to gain such support
as well. Otherwise it is a tall order to support a specialized data type in
a *generic* data access layer like FDO. Do other systems like Oracle,
Postgres, etc support XML columns?

Getting the FDO provider to treat XML columns as strings is an easier
