That is the stage we are at. I have this gut feeling that we need to
define what it means to have a search engine operate on let's say 100,00
documents marked up using XML, and what are the situations where it might
make more sense to search a file which describes that collection.

Your best contribution would be to describe a business problem and tell us
how you like to solve it.
