  I guess it's Ok, the goal is to reflect as closely as possible the
"simple" data structures suggested by DOM. And the event stuff being
closely related to the elements in the tree, yes I think it makes sense.

  Basicallly my take is that DOM is inherently memory costly since
 it's targetted at editing the document. If people really wants memory
 efficiency, using the SAX interfaces are the way to go.
