Hi Walter.

The point I was aiming at is that the hierarchy view is the result of a 
lossy derivation
from the syntax view.

So, for example, working from a hierarchy view, I cannot
process the second line of the internal document type declaration
subset - that information just isn't available.

So, any process specific view is limited in scope to what has been exposed
in the infoset of the chosen XML processor.
