I actually need DOM support in WebWorkers as well, and have done for 
quite some time, typically just the ability to convert XML and HTML 
documents in to DOM trees and traverse, essentially DOM Level 3 - indeed 
even and XML / HTML to javascript object structure replicating the tree 
would be sufficient for certainly all of my own use cases.

General use case is simple, XHR requests w/ XML or text/html responses, 
extract some information from the response and use, typical usage on the 
web when working with APIs which return XML, when taking a "my website 
is my api" approach, and when working with microdata and rdfa.

Best,

Nathan
