    The best way to explain XQuery is to say that XQuery is to XML what SQL is to database tables.

    But I am unclear on how this relates directly to Oracle.

    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    OK.
    All RDBMS "understand" SQL; however each RDBMS (Oracle MS SQLServer, MYSQL, Postgres, etc.) likely does SQL query optimization differently.
    So I am not sure you can compare & contrast between XQuery & SQL;
    when you'll have many variations just on the SQL optimization.
