Ah, I understand the difficulty. I believe I should have said
"elements". I was thinking in terms of generic trees and picked the
word "node" instead. Are "nodes" substantially different from
"elements" in this context?

Did I ask you to prove a negative? Could you point me to that request?
I thought I only asked you to refute my positive assertion ("designed
for nodes") which you have. I originally intended "designed for
elements". Sorry for the confusion.
