As one of the 80% who fall into this category that sounds absolutely
correct to me. I use JDOM a lot to do nice simple things with
nice simple XML documents and it works a treat. I've never wanted
or needed to subclass any JDOM classes, am happy with the current
design, and don't have anything to complain about.
