I completely agree.  Although while attending Elliot Rusty Harold's first
talk about JDOM in NYC a while back it was one of the first questions I
asked in where exactly the power of JDOM lied and I always thought it was
custom builders for anything but he had voted against it saying it doesnt
make sense to write your own builder.

I just feel that in the world of XML Protocols that there is no easier way
to write or read XML via JDOM so I would like to see it as an XP solution
player (most people probably implement it this way anyway).  And there is
alot of places where its only simply a matter of extending Document and
Element to take advantage of it (such as an XP Envelope).
