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

      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.
