RE: XML version number via DOM

Setting aside the fact that I can't seem to keep myself from responding to
list messages prior to RTFM (honestly, I knew that the Document can, along
with a single Element, have Comments, PIs, and a DocumentType -- I just
glazed over that stuff), the Level 2 DOM still doesn't provide for a
Document Declaration node. So if an implementation wanted the Document to
provide access to the XMLDecl version attribute, it would have to implement
an extension. Correct?

		The Document may also contain a DocumentType node, and
		ProcessingInstructions, and Comments. See the table of legal
children in
		the DOM spec.
