I could see this being useful as a tool to help us get 
some wider test coverage for the DOM.  My caveats for using
this as the main parser itself include: 
- performance 
- configuration options - whether or not we are able to skip 
	inclusions and do a best effort quick-parse
- the error handling strategy, as quite often we are going to 
	be parsing working copies while the user is typing for
	the outline view and code assist.  

That being said, I will try it out and give it a fair and impartial
trial.  :-)
