*The* model of the Web is not DOM. *The* model of the Web does not 
exist. There are multiple instances of *a* model of the Web. Several of 
these call themselves DOM, though I'm sure this group knows quite well 
just how  different they really are.

The map is not the world. The model is not the document. Any model is 
just a convenient local representation. The reality of the document is 
its text.
