Thane, my example deals with a scenario where a intermediate party needs to look at specific components of a document, eg, it may need information to route the document.  The intermediate party looks for specific elements only (using say, Xpath), and does not need to examine the other data (payload).  Could you explain why this kind of code would be brittle or error-prone ?
