I think you can safely say that this is exactly what DOMOutputter is
doing. Oh, no, wait, it's making a copy? I'm confused. I just got
back from Asia and I need coffee. Who are all you people? What are
you doing in my living room?
Oh, wait, no:
The point is, making either a copy of the JDOM tree contents into a
new DOM tree, or a set of DOM wrapper objects that point back to the
JDOM equivalents, or a set of hybrid extends-JDOM-but-implements-DOM
objects, are all possible and straightforward, though there may be
performance issues. Which is exactly Simon's point.
