On today's telecon discussion on this proposal Christian asked what the 
approach to matching against XML data might be and Harold mentioned that a 
similar approach to that used for SPARQL (an external atom) might be used.

Another possibility is that XML literals be one of the legal data types 
(needed for RDF compatibility anyway), so you could bind the condition 
language variables to whole XML trees. Then have a set of builtins which 
provide xpath-like operators to extract sub-parts of the XML tree to bind 
to other variables.

That may be the same as what Harold was proposing, but if not then it 
seemed an option worth mentioning.
