Why don't you use a JavaScript implementation of DOM for now? And if
so many developers take such approach, then browser vendors can
consider implementing it natively. (But the reality is, XML is just
hardly ever used on client side)
I know that jsdom https://github.com/tmpvar/jsdom already has some use
cases with Node.js and some people run YUI or jQuery on top of it.
