XRX: Simple, Elegant, Disruptive

A meme gathering momentum is "XRX" - XForms on the client, REST  
interfaces, XQuery on the server.

One posting was by Dan McCreary on xml.com  
(http://www.oreillynet.com/xml/blog/2008/05/xrx_a_simple_elegant_disruptiv_1.html),  
which contained the memorable quote

	Traditional methods required approximately 40 inserts into separate  
tables within a relational database.
	The use of XForms and eXist resulted in one line of XQuery code:

		store(collection, file, data)

	That was it. Simple. Elegant. I was hooked.

Since then the meme has been popping up elsewhere. For instance, see
