Office update CABs - MSP enough, or XML needed?

Office updates from the Windows Update Catalog usually come in CABs that includes two files: an MSP, and an XML.
MSPs seem to work by themselves. What's actually using the related XMLs?

For a single-computer environment, is msiexec the usual way to mass-install MSPs, or is there a better/recommended way?
