I've thought about how to do this in my implementation.  It would
require either recreating the rendering structure from that document
node, or putting in some special case code to handle it in parallel in
the two structures.  

What I'd like to know is why someone would *want* to change this.
Most of the DHTML stuff has had to do with visual effects and feedback,
this is more of a structural issue,  kind of like changing display: .
