There were tools that used the ESIS, and tools that just used those to get into some internal form. At that application level, even attributes and elements didn't/don't exist. There's something like this we see in XML processing. Many sysems do something like: Document properties = loadProperties("foo.xml"); and other systems do this Properties properties = loadProperties("foo.xml"); Which of these uses a tree or ESIS? At an application level, is that important?
