As I said in a another thread, you'd be better off with an SQL
    update language expressed as XML than a "mapping".

    A "mapping" is a boondogggle.

    Want do see the example again?
    
    SQL splits itself neatly into update and query. They are two
    different problems. SQL has a clean query solution for XML
    already. The update part is all that is missing.
