Mixed. Content goes with getContent and such, but as Elliotte point out, it'd
be nice to have the same terminology as the big 3 XML specs. (XML 1.0+
Namespaces+XPath) which talk about "content", "parent", children", "siblings"
, "descendants", etc.

But at this point in time Parent/Content or Parent/Child is fine by me. Even
Node would be fine.  But IMHO Container would be a confusing terminology in
this context.
