Given that any complex data structure like the DOM can possibly do some to
lots of lazy eval type stuff, even a read can potentially cause
modifications to the data. It might not be happening now, but could at any
point in the future, which would break your whole scheme. So its probably
best not to make any assumptions, and just do the right thing.
