Am I right that there is a semi-offical, portably implemented SAX API for
Python but
there is no such beast for the DOM? 

* Is it reasonable to unify a subset of their interfaces?

* Could 4XSL be written to use that interface so that it would work with
both DOM implementations or do performance issues make that impossible?

By lumping computers and televisions together, as if they exerted a 
single malign influence, pessimists have tried to argue that the 
electronic revolution spells the end of the sort of literate culture 
that began with Gutenberg’s press. On several counts, that now seems 
the reverse of the truth.
