What do you need that you don't get from, for example, the DOM + 
the SVG DOM for editing SVG? I've been encouraging anyone who 
will listen to me to define their own DTD/schema-specific DOMs on 
top of the DOM for domain-specific work; MathML, SVG and SMIL 
are all doing this, for example, and I see no reason why others 
shouldn't as well.
