It is not. Perhaps in your application it is, but in browsers the whole 
document tree is only available after the document has transferred over 
the network in its entirity. This may take up to tens of seconds, 
depending on the document size, client connection and server connection. 
Not rendering anything until that is done is not acceptable...
