    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request, and apologies for the length of time it has been held in the status of Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration status. Unfortunately, the long time that this has been open and the single vote which this item has accrued, suggests business prioritization is best served elsewhere especially given that other means of representing the data as CHAR are already available in the product.

    Thanks for raising this requirement - completely agreed and desirable to have support for native XML types in SQLServer.
