good candidate for a storage format for people implementing this API, 
indeed. (Although JSON doesn't support E4X or DOM nodes as yet.)

I looked at this but could not immediately work out how to leverage this 
idea in the context of HTML5, unfortunately. Do you know if any work is 
being done on POEs still?
