I recently checked whether the XPath and XSLT support
of "libxml2/libxslt" could be used with a Python based DOM.
The (almost sure) answer has been: "no, they work only with the
'libxml2' DOM".

Our DOM/XPath/XSLT implementations are more flexible (though probably
much slower) than the ones of "libxml".

But, almost surely, you are not interested in this but to
take "libxml" for parsing and build our DOM structures from
this process.
