The setChildren() method is intimating that you are passing a list
only Elements to be added.

I personally use this method a great deal as it tends to point out to
the reader
that I'm passing a list containing only Elements and nothing else.

With the introduction of the FilterList (beta8 ?) this method should
throw an
exception if a list is passed in containing anything other than a list
Elements. IMHO.

I'd personally like to see this one stay.
