I don't think this is something the ERT group needs to work on. On the other hand it should be a relatively straightforward task (compared to HTTP in RDF) since it is not transactional in nature but a straight model. The big question is whether you choose a real tree-based DOM like the theoretical one proposed by W3C that applies to XML but doesn't match what is implemented for HTML, or whether you try to sort out the HTML mess. I think that would be more useful, but we might as well wait for the HTML group to figure out how they are going about it, or adopt the WHATWG model (which is still just an unstable draft and has other problems in terms of incorporating it in W3C work).

In short, let's wait. If there is a straightforward and stable target, it could be good, but there isn't yet and I am not convinced that we want ot be the ones doing the hard work... (I don't :) )

cheers
