In the plan I gave you guys, I only meant for the XML to be a way to
communicate between a wfs and the Workspace (GUI). It was designed so that
intermittently connected clients (or people who need to log out) can check
up on the status of their analysis from time to time, esp. on a really
long analysis. PAOS would most likely be used as the mode of communication
between the wfs and the loci.

Regarding the comment on making workflow information independent from the
biological stuff, I think the data section covers that separation quite
well. Keep the bio-related stuff in between the <data> and </data> tags
and the rest is Loci-specific workflow information. This format also makes
it easy to store the results of an analysis for archival purposes.
