      And so would a good naming standard. With appropriate automation.

      Consider:
      Suppose the Customer class was stored in the CUSTOMER table, and the
      Employee class in the EMPLOYEE table. Why is the source of this
      cross-reference data an XML file, rather than a general rule?

      Same for columns: Suppose the 'firstName' attribute is stored in
      the 'FIRST_NAME' column. If you had naming standards and rules,
      you'd hardly need a cross-reference file.
