I think the processing rules should be written in terms of the DOM,  
but allowing an implementation to implement the rules any way it  
wants, as long as the results are equivalent. That is how HTML5 and  
XHTML+RDFa are both written, so it also makes sense for HTML+RDFa.

Making special DOM-only processing rules that don't otherwise apply  
would be bad, so I hope that's not what Manu is proposing.
