I debate this. I could just as easily say that SDOM doesn't
expose entities, and is read-only, but is still layered on
top of XML 1.0. I've done something like this a few times
over the last year, and every one of those API's was much
simpler than the DOM.

The question is not one of syntax, but exposure of 
information through the API. 

Is SML a syntax, a data model, or what?
