I think that there are cases where markup should be used to create
complex DOM. Even with an almost perfect DSL it would be hard to beat
HTML for its conciseness.

Try to beat this with any DSL of your choice.

var df = createContextualFragment(
  "<table><thead><tr><td>API<td>Chars</thead>" +
  "<tbody><tr><td>HTML<td>Some" +
  "<tr><td>Imperative<td>More" +

The only one that stands a chance is E4X.
