Existing outputters sould cope with the "mimimum" simply linked
classes.  On the other hand, if the core JDOM API supports two
types of nodes (document, element...), it should provide an easy
way to choose which type of document to build and default to the
simply linked classes.
And, for me, "easy way" cannot mean extending each builder. If the
builders are to support factories then the core API shall include
a factory for each type of node supported.
