IBM supports Open standards for most of it's products. In today's scenario, Lotus Notes solutions need to co exist with other enterprise solutions such as ERP, Portal etc.
IBM need to provide a new design element XML Data source.
It should allow the developers to choose the
XML Source:  View/Form/Search Criteria
If XML Source is Form, display list of fields in the form
Field Name  XMLTagName
Name           Customer
ID                  ID
and make Lotus Notes data available as XML Source.
If XML source is View
Column name  XMLTagName
Name           Customer
ID                  ID
If XML source is search criteria
fields           XMLTagName
Name           Customer
ID                  ID
Note : Design element need to handle the multi value seperators etc.
After this design element is saved, This should be acting as XML Data source.
This makes lotus notes come out of the biggest limitation i.e. only nsf format.
It also improves the co existance capabilities as well as increase application life of Domino

Maybe I don't understand your point. I don't see much difference from DXL.
I prefer the ability of storing XML somewhat like documents instead of attachments. XML is useful to store some hierarchy data.

Would this be from the client or the server via http?
