In various projects we've come across this. Sometimes we've just shoved it
in there. Sometimes we parsed the hell out of it to fit in various tables.
The question always comes back to "do we need to search/edit the data on
the server?"

Remember that hierarchical schemas are a very real and accepted form of
storage... most people just know them as XML.
