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?
