Of course, and programmers have been able to access for instance Excel
XLS files through ODBC for about 20 years. Read and write it like any DB
That XLS storage is still clumsy and unreliable. No unique Index fields
nor Indexes to speed the access etc.

Yet, if the speed is OK and Database accessing functionality is
adequate, why not just use XLS file or textual XML file as your main
storage. And access those files with the easiest available tool you have
in your possession.

If you already know how to solve all the XML file accessing questions
and tasks simply by using your DBMS engine, then why just not use it?
What was the original question and problem again?
