The original intention wasn't to rehash SQL into xml... unfortunately I 
got stuck in that model.  The reason I xmlified everything was to remove 
the requirement of understanding SQL on the clients. The goal was to 
simplify the client requirements as much as possible. (not sure if I 
acheived that)

Placing a <query> element to embed SQL is a good idea... though I think 
it should be an optional feature and not a requirement.

Will look into XMLQuery ... see if that would work.

Thnx for the input
