Heh. This is starting to sound psychoanalytic :)

Yeah, I understand where you're going. Basically, don't think of 
ResourceContent as a place to store XML data. Think of it as the place 
where you include the actual content of the resource you're trying to 
access. The fact that the connonical representation is XML, and that 
you can query it using XPath, is just a concidence :)

Seriously, you should feel free to include any XML data you need in the 
Subject section if it's related to the Subject. The catch is that you 
may need to define a new datatype. In general, however, I think this is 
cleaner than defining a catch-all section where you can dump 
XML-encoded data. That's just my opinion..
