The xml data type only exists on certain builds of PostgreSQL and not by default. For example, Fedora 7, using PostgreSQL 8.2.4 does not have this support. We can't have conditional field types based on what the database might or might not support in the server (it's very hard to detect and non-portable).

If somebody wants to use this functionality, they can create a field subclass (in the near future) that does what they want.

It's true that XML data type only exists in certains builds of PostgreSQL, but it isn't hard to detect.

After of 5 min. in #postgresql channel (freenode):

\d pg_type
select * from pg_type;
