It's reasonable for the CDI framework to require that:
 * if an implementation supports the FooML (e.g., SVG) DOM, and
 * if it supports FooML (e.g., SVG) as a part of mixed-namespace documents,
then either:
 * (my preferred solution) all potentially-mixed-namespace documents
   support the FooML DOM's document interface (e.g., SVGDocument), or
 * all mixed-namespace documents containing FooML (e.g., SVG) elements
   support the FooML DOM's document interface.
(The document interfaces available could also be determined by the root
element or the media type (MIME type), but I don't think many people
like those options much, and they wouldn't solve this problem.)

(I think I've said this before in the CDF WG, but it's worth clarifying
