This is a good issue to bring up - some code can be shielded from xml 
specifics, but in some cases dealing with objects rather than a document 
model is inconvenient (eg need to do xpath expressions).  So, it may not 
be appropriate for all code to use the POJOs. BTW: does anybody have any 
experience with the JXPath from commons that Aaron refers to? Is it fast?
