Re: [xml-dev] text nodes of document in XDM

Have you considered implementing serialization of sequences of XdmItems 
rather than documents?  That way you could preserve the distinctions 
that are being lost when you go to a document.  If somebody wants to 
make a document from your serialized format, they could always construct 
it easily enough.
