If Chris does not object or respond, I can step up and provide the
implementation for MSXML by 12 January.  There is nothing in the license
that prohibits me from implementing the simple API over MSXML.

As far as James' concern over having a simple DOM, I think one of us can
implement a XmlApplication that produces W3C DOM objects so programmers can
just deal with DOM.  Any takers?
