The problem is that you need to create a "record" for each new DOM node 
that is added to the document. Therefore, if we want an instruction that 
adds its XML payload to the document, we need to specify a unique way of 
implicitly generating a record for each node in the payload. However, 
that seems error prone especially given that different DOM engines may 
parse the XML payload differently (e.g. I think IE ignores some 
whitespace nodes that Firefox doesn't).
