Shiver!  Dare, Jonathan, and I agree on something having to do with 
XQuery.... a sign of the End Times :-)

I guess I was just missing Adam Bosworth's point because "[DOM/JDOM, 
SAX/databinding, and XSLT] are only rarely suitable ..." is a bit of an 
overstatement. If the point is "less than optimally suitable for non-XML 
geeks" I would have agreed.
