Just thinking...

Or better yet, rather than using the flat Node 
model DOM uses, have mix-ins.

interface Node {
       unsigned short nodeType;

interface AttributeAxis {
	NamedNodeMap attributes;

interface Name {
	String nodeName;
	String prefix;
	String namespaceURI;
	String localName;

interface Value {
       String nodeValue;

interface AncestorAxis {
       Node parentNode();

interface ElementNode extends Node, Name, AttributeAxis, AncestorAxis { }
interface AttributeNode extends Node, Name, Value {]

// for DOM...

interface Node extends Node, Name, AttributeAxis, AncestorAxis, etc... 
   // add child Axis, mutators, etc.
