After another reading pass through the first draft of requirements and 
use cases, I've check that from the 28 use cases listed, I've counted, 
at least, 8 use cases (correct me if I'm wrong) that directly need 
pipeline support from an augmented data model.

These use cases mainly address HTML and text files (de)serialization 
issues, and the XQuery/RelaxNG factors. Do we want to support these use 
cases? Or should they be discarded/postponed?

As XDM can provide support for these use cases, I say "support XDM".
