I guess I missed something early in this discussion, so this is probably a
dumb question. At what point in your code do you have a reference to 
an Attribute that you didn't get via

	Attribute a = e.getAttribute(key);

That is, how is it that one can be navigating from an Attribute with no
knowledge of the Element with said Attribute?
