The XML Information Set REC, <URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-infoset/>,
is the moral equivalent of a grove plan.

The PSVI defined in the W3C XML Schema REC is also the equivalent
of a grove plan.

A concrete infoset -- say a stream of SAX events or a DOMDocument --
is the moral equivalent of a grove.

The grove abstraction itself is a run-of-the-mill tree-like
abstract data structure; basically you've got nodes and properties,
some of which may be other nodes, and there's a distinguished
root.  The grove model is a more rigid and formalized than the model
used in the W3C RECs, but it's essentially the same kind of thing.
