You shouldn't expect any XML functionality from CTE except for the export. CTE is a tool primarily for creating printed editions and it is very good at that. It removes the need to do things like creating pointers between apparatus entry or note and the text (that in an XML environment are usually your own responsibility). Because it is so powerful and flexible, users may still need some support to use its features effectively. In an XML-based environment, CTE wouldn't really fit.
