We don't require a DOM implementation for instance data, only that it is an
"XPath data mmodel". (Though DOM is certainly a good way to get there!)

In 7.2, we define an interface that returns a DOM document (again, this only
makes sense in implementations that have a DOM). We've updated our internal
version to clarify that this must be singly-rooted, just like the serialized
instance data shown in 2.3.

Subject: type of instance data


In a recent thread, it was highlighted that an instance element can have
several children (as stated in chapter 4.3.2).

But according to chapter 7.2, the instance data is a DOM Document (that is
to say with only one child element).

Is it a contradiction in terms, or am I missing something ?
