No no no.  You are missing the point - this is the SIMPLE interface for
RDF-heads and SMIL-folks and all the other people who think that XML
should just be elements and attributes and have none of that SGML
apparatus.  From the end-user programmer's point of view, it should be.

If you turn your assertion around, then it's correct: you should
be able to build SAX on top of the DOM. -Tim
