I agree with that !!

I was just pointing that all APIs that are included with the JDK are
"special".
We may hack something to override DOM, but changing interfaces in the JDK is

not easy. If DOM will be included in rt.jar ( or in ext/ ) than the class
loader used will be the system loader. It's a problem - not that I want it
this way.

Lets check if DOM2/DOM1 are backward compatible, if so then we don't have to
worry about this. They are smart people.
