How are you receiving the original information? Is it coming in as XML or are you converting it before insert? Your responses will help shape the final solution, but it will utilize XML.exist() method: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189869.aspx

I think if combined with with a WHERE NOT EXISTS can help yield the behavior you need.
