The current XML API of ozone is much rawer then the XML:DB API draft.
It "only" supports single documents without (nested) collections
support. The current implementation provides everything you need to
store, retrieve, and query single documents. You can handle DOM and
SAX input but no flat XML or binary content (e.g. unparsed entities).

XML:DB API sits on top of ozone's XML API to extent this raw API to
a full XML database API.

I don't want to modify the current XML API, except for the addition
of a persistent collection implementation. So the current API will
be supported in the future.

The current XML API can also act as the basis of other APIs / protocols
like e.g. SOAP.

Does this make sense? :-)
