I wouldn't say that. There's a lot of weirdness in the intersection between DOM and XPath as well. I think it's more accurate to say that XPath was created without any particular object model in mind. That's why it defines it's own data model for an XML document, that is quite a bit different from DOM's and JDOM's.
