I seems like you is very confused yourself about positioning of your
library. Here, you say "it's all 3" where 3 is "XML parser", and in another
thread you say:

  On the other hand, if boost gets its XML library,

It would be pretty bad if Boost has property_tree that reads "simple" XML
*and* another XML library, with different interface that has full support
for XML. How am I to choose one or another library?

I guess you either need to position your library as generic tree with some
extra indexing, or as full-blown XML library.
