If your data is in a regular enough structure (rows and columns) to be
read in and out of a dataset, do you really need XML?
Could you avoid the libname engine entirely, use put statments to
write the data and call an XSLT engine to read/translate it?
Could you use SAS as a back-end only, have it act as a database, and
have your application communicate with SAS using ODBC or OLEDB? Then
you could forget about SAS's XML support entirely.
