Is (or was) there any reason to Axiom to come up with an new API rather than
using DOM API?
I was thinking that Dom does not support differed building and that seems to
be wrong.

There are some axis2 specific methods to get under line xml stream etc...
But they would have added by
extending the DOM API.
