That's an interesting assertion, but I don't follow the reasoning.
You're saying that that DOM's pursuit of the chimera of XML+CSS as 
the universal light application platform helped kill Netscape?

More people would assert that Netscape's failure to pursue XML
aggressively gave Microsoft a powerful differentiator.  

I would agree that the demise of Netscape as a credible 
platform killed interest in browser API standards.
