Actually, you are atttributing me with too much cleverness.  Docuverse's
DOM.createDocument was modeled after the portion of the DOM Level 1 spec
that fell off the wagon before release.

Have you tried the constructor?  I don't know much about XML4j but
DataChannel's so called Most Advanced XML Parser uses constructor to create
new Documents.
