Looks like a pretty good summary although I didn't spend enough time reading
to see if I correlated all your points properly...

Most certainly not (which is why my original response tried to restrict the
discussion to a small subset).

When I've had that requirement I usually do it by serving the XML through a

Most often, for me, the requirement for the "raw" XML is a B2B issue and not
a B2C issue (in the generic sense).
