I'm confused by this. The idea of the DOM is to standardize the object 
model part of "dynamic HTML" (whatever that might mean; the definition
seems to change with the application that supports it, the person talking 
about it, and probably the phase of the moon as well). So what sort of
extension to XSL do you mean? I also don't understand why the XML 
would have an XSL-grove interface, and the "output" (what does 
output mean?) would have a DOM interface, when the DOM should 
be an interface to an XML document...
