is there a real requirement for this?

we already have mutation events, and we already have xmlhttprequest.

if a client wants to dynamically control the content, they can either
rely on mutation (please don't, it isn't performant, nor would your
replacement be), or they can use xmlhttprequest and do whatever they
like w/ the data as they get it.
