Hi Neil,
  Well, maybe I don't understand the question, but I'd say you could
use SDOM pretty much anywhere you'd use, say, JDOM, but wanted to use
Scheme instead of Java.  Granted, the most popular application of the
DOM is in web browsers alongside (X)HTML, but I find it's quite handy
for doing high-level manipulation of XML documents in general.  I know
some people have strong feelings about the isomorphism between XML and
S-expressions that SXML exploits and that SDOM kind of runs counter to
that, but it also provides a few features that SSAX doesn't -- and
that I needed for the projects I'm working on -- such as the event
handling stuff and a stronger type system for XML nodes.
  As regards the manual, point taken -- I'm kind of assuming a high
level of familiarity with W3C specifications and the docs could
probably use some more examples / discussion of applications.
