I have similar impression.

IOW, 3-4 examples solving simple to more complex problems.
Perhaps it would be possible to have interaction with Boost.PropertyTree
as well.

What I would like to learn myself is also:
- How this library is similar/different to non-validating XML parsers
(e.g. Expat)?
- How this library is similar/different to validating XML parsers (e.g.
Xerces or libxml2)?

Having answers to the two questions above, it would be easier to
understand what XML-related problems your library actually solves.
