I Disagree. JDOM is an important up and coming API that already has
established a large and rapidly growing groundswell of support and in the
developer community.

You personally don't have to do the work to provide JDOM support -- as long
as the core architecture is pluggable and modular, then you can work on DOM
and Brett and co can work on JDOM and everybody wins.

Wouldn't this be sign of a development community getting along. :)
