They are trying to construct the same DOM from HTML and XHTML input.
That's orthogonal to processing XML -- XMLHTTPRequest has become
moderately popular, and even though it is most commonly used with either
JSON or HTML fragments today, I doubt any browser vedor would want to
break their "Web 2.0" support...

There's also at least one XML parser written in JavaScript.
