But one of the advantages of a hierarchically-structured data
representation is the ability to have scopes to which properties apply. If
a processor can't at least maintain a stack of the attributes of the
ancestors of the current element, it's pretty darn braindead.
I mean come on, we have to presume *some* intelligence in processors.
