The LS is short at providing an IO library. No HTTP
headers, authentification, etc. You cannot access the
HTTP headers of the received document either. If we
add your proposal, why should we stop half-way? You
can always use an external library to manipulate those
and give an input stream to the DOMBuilder.

Supporting SOAP may be too ambitious and nothing I
write that late at night should be considered a
proposal.  Since parseURI is already deployed,
modifying its signature is undesirable.

However, I don't see any obvious way to actually use
the Save part of Load/Save within a browser without
resorting to some browser-specific mechanism to get a
DOMOutputStream.  Having some standard way of doing a
simple HTTP PUT or POST would seem to open up a lot of
possibilities for client-side editing of data.
