>Now, is this overkill?  

No, its beautiful. I'm particularly delighted with access to the 
doctype and comments. An application which strips out
comments when updating a document always seemed
unforgivably rude!

>Do we really need to know about CDATA sections 

Debatable perhaps, but supported by the DOM. (Anyone know why?)
But I'd really like to see better SAX/DOM integration, so Yes!

>and the XML declaration?

I think this could be helpful when updating a document, the encoding
in particular. (An update should make the minimum necessary changes.)
