  Sorry; that would have taken just enough more that I didn't want to
get into that today, but it shouldn't be hard.  See my comments on the
bug page (just added).

  No.  There's still seriously little parameter checking in minidom,
and I'm not sure I want to add that.  One of the problems people had
with PyOM was the general weight of the code, and adding all the
checks contributes to that (though I suspect the proxies in PyDOM were
a far more serious contributor).
