If you desugar the DOMs, they are equivalent, though. The problem with talking
about "the DOM" as a shorthand for the document tree is that the DOM has some
domain modeling errors--particularly exposing the CDATA syntactic sugar in the
data model.

Note that there's an ongoing attempt to remove this domain modeling error from
the Web DOM: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=660660
