In general this seems like an easy task: all the PostGIS geometry types 
supports X,Y,Z and M coordinates, and you are free to model your 
database as you like.

On the other hand: i do not know the AIXM-format at all, and there is a 
chance someone has done some work on a PostGIS storage of this, which 
would save you a lot of work I gues..
