On webapps, we discussed a helper method, "create", which might fit well 
in DOM4.

Element.create('img', {src: '...'}),

This included some talk about chaining the method, something that is 
present in several
JS libraries and particularly useful in cutting down on verbosity when 
building SVG documents and other graphs.

It seems a reasonable discussion to continue here.

This functionality has been requested across groups using DOM. 
Admittedly, it is syntactic sugar.
