  What is your definition of "unstructured"?  An HTML files in the
  htdocs tree generated from the XML sources is still a valid XML
  file (and if not, we should fix it), and it is easy to put
  an attribute into a node in the source as a marker to query.

  I am not sure what you are trying to say.  You mean the htdocs tree
  should not have an XML file as a "source" file for generating HTML
  files which are actually distributed via HTTP?
