On "native" XML support in databases


A couple of months ago, I provided feedback on an article on XML support in DB2 written by Philip Howard of Bloor Research. I invited him to comment on my analysis, so I am assuming his recent article can be taken as his response. In the new article, he claims that DB2 is the only relational database product to provide native XML support. He also states that SQL Server 2005 does not offer this support and alleges that Microsoft is abusing the term.
