Yes, the baseVal *is* the DOM value, except typed (where applicable). 
Base values are discussed at lengtt in the sandwich model part (and 
others, though more indirectly) of SMIL Animation 

Note that as per DOM 3 implementations are allowed to normalize 
attribute values that they know about, so if it is more efficient for 
your situation you could keep in memory only the typed baseVal, and use 
that to compute the string returned by getAttributeNS().
