(My) Feeling About SML

Thanks to Leigh and Michael for this excellent subthread,

I do agree that there is a problem with API complexity.
DOM is a nice API but rather big and complex for certain
applications and results in rather verbose code.  Having
a 'limited subset' spec/guide would certainly help in
defining a simpler DOM (SDOM if you will).

SAX is simple but it is difficult to use in applications
where access to yet-to-come elements and character data is
needed.  Getting around this problem complicates the XML
