It certainly demonstrates the neatness of a well-defined interface, 
as all that implementation specific complexity is hidden behind the 
small signature of the build() method.

But that said, each of the listed methods presuppose the availability 
of an existing document, correct? Whereas I was initially concerned 
about the inability to generate a completely *new* document, but 
it has been demonstrated to me that this involves some implementation 
specific bootstrapping. And from the later discussions all I gather 
the W3C *could* specify is some standard registry/property keys/values 
that would feed into this bootstrapping mechanism. Would that 
be a fair assessment of the situation?
