I see what you mean.  I was thinking about running 4XSLT on non-domlette
source nodes.

I'm guessing you've been working on code to allow XsltElements and
result-tree fragments to use minidom, so you're talking about calls to
releaseNode that handle these things.

Well, I think the best solution to this, rather than making a universal
ReleaseNode function, is to generalize the Reader architecture into a
general factory that can read, initialize and dispose of nodes.  This
could be a Python DOM standard binding extension to DOMImplementation.

The earlier conversation I alluded to is the DOMImplementationFactory
discussion.  If the DOMImplementation gets some standard add-ons, then
this can be used to determine the destruction mechanism in the general
