The best way to use XML as a lite user-editable database is with surgical XPath
strikes, so you probably already have a good design.
I don't know about the library you snipped, but I might be the only person in
the world who based a system on YPath.
My "yar_wiki" project puts YPath to good use, in Ruby. Hit it here:
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/9780596510657/ <-- build a YAML wiki with YPath
http://assertxpath.rubyforge.org/ <-- unrelated documentation
http://phlip.svnrepository.com/svn/yar_wiki/ <-- special sauce
