[jdom-interest] Why no removeAllContent()?

Just a quick question:
There are several remove...() methods but not one to clear all of the
children.  I understand I can do it with setContent( null ) but that's not
quite as clear as removeAllContent() or clear().  So why is there no
removeAllContent() method?
