Because this is not about blah and rhubarb, but about dom and sax.

If we get both xml.dom and pyxml.dom, won't people get confused as
they have to pick one, and don't know how to make a choice? Especially
if it doesn't appear to make any difference for some applications?

I can't answer that question, because if I implement that change, I
know that *I* won't get confused, but I can't generalize from that.
