Like many others have I started to look at the Grooves model once more
and this time at little closer. Im especially interested in how my
current "DOM-compliant" model matches the Groove.
One aspect got my attention and it was that properties and not nodes
contains "data" such as strings,integer,etc.

Could somone explain the design rationale why properties and not node
carries data ?
Does this design imply that tree-algorithms are easier to implement ?
Any other aspects that benefits from this design ?
