Fred L. Drake, Jr. <fred at fdrake.net> added the comment:

Removing "Lightweight" and changing the first paragraph to (something like)

:mod:`xml.dom.minidom` is an implementation of the Document Object Model
interface.  The API is slightly simpler than the full W3C DOM, but the
implementation has a significantly higher memory footprint than

would be entirely reasonable.

(I don't think it's wrong to discuss relative memory footprints in comparison to other modules in the standard library.)
