The only problem I see there, is...

My XPath engine doesn't build the Document.  It just accepts a Document
from the client.  As long as it's a JDOM Document, I'm happy.

I'd rather not force folks to use a special builder for XPath-intended

What if I need XPathElement, and Mr. Harold needs XIncludeElement,
then we can't apply both XPath and XInclude to the same base

Ends up sounding like the JDOM->DOM conversion so you can apply
XSLT with Xalan right now.  Conversions are bad (or at least are
performance hindering).
