Martin Panter added the comment:

In xml.dom, the documentation suggests that there are classes called Document and others, and I was surprised to find that they don’t exist. Apparently they are more like pseudo-code names of abstract interfaces instead. However in xml.dom.minidom there is a real Python class called Document. The documentation should be clearer about this.

I don’t think we need to duplicate the descriptions already given in xml.dom. But it would be good to explicitly say what the public minidom classes are, and point out (or link) what APIs they support.
