following on.. surely all it needs is:

[NoInterfaceObject]
interface DocumentData {
   Projection  getProjection (in DOMString subject, in optional object 
template);
     Sequence  getProjections (in optional object template);
     Sequence  getProjections (in optional DOMString property, in 
optional DOMString? value, in optional object template);
     Sequence   getProperties (in optional DOMString? subject);
     Sequence   getSubjects (in optional DOMString? property, in 
optional DOMString? value);
     Sequence   getValues (in optional DOMString? subject, in optional 
DOMString? property);
     DOMString  setMapping (in in DOMString mapping, in in DOMString uri);
};

+ some way to .parse and some way to .query ?
