I don't understand the second part of your last sentence, after "and".
But the DOM only defines interfaces. Nothing prevents anyone from
designing a minimal DOM implementation that has a small footprint. I'm
actually already experimenting with something like that. In the long run
I see us having several DOM implementations that fulfill different
requirements and live together. DOM being a standard API, one will be
able to choose the implementation that best fits his/her needs and be
able to change at any time if need be.
