One of the ideas of using XML at all, instead of just cooking your own small language, is that reliable and unambigous parsing comes for free.


<problem models="long list" software_releases="long list" >

you are throwing out some of the advantage -- you again have to parse manually, probably introducing a bug somewhere.

instead of

      <model>...</model>    (many times)
      <rel>...</rel>    (many times)

This is much nicer in that respect, and if you use XSL you'll probably have something working much sooner. That's a real performance consideration too :)
