Looked at the site, and noticed that Eric is at ISOGEN. There's loads of
knowledge at that company; perhaps our group will find ourselves working
with them at some point. I just wish I could suck out the knowledge and
experience that some of these docheads have. My suspicion is that a lot
of the issues we are facing and will face may already have been solved,
or at least thought about real hard.

Incidentally, in honor of our recent conceptual progress, perhaps dGrove
is a better name than DDOM? DDOM has the unsightly disadvantage of being
associated with the DOM. :-)
