Are you suggesting that these are orthogonal divides? I'm not sure 
that they are, and wonder whether document vs. infoset is actually

Exposing these different approaching is a useful exercise, if 
for no other reason that illuminating the viewpoints and pre-conceptions 
of the folk taking part in the debates.
