The W3C DOM is a technology enabler. A high-speed implementation is a
product. The Docuverse SDK is something in between. Call it an expedient?

I have been wrestling with these concepts for a while myself. I'd like to
see the Coins api widly adopted. So I've tried to make use of common api
(SAX and DOM), rather than provide a propriatary one. But I am driven by a
need to make a profit. I hope to do this by charging a reasonable price for
related development tools.

The bet that I am making is that Coins will become widespread and that I can
make a reasonable profit selling those tools for $99.
