FWIW, I once put together a (somewhat over-elaborate) SAX-style API 
which allowed for faithful lexical round-tripping as well as supporting 
layering of SAX/DOM/Infoset/XPath APIs above it.

I'd be surprised if I'm the only one who's done that and I have a hard 
time comprehending what could possibly be supposed to prevent it. So,
