Aren't there three?  I think libxml has its own DOM structure as well or is it 
the same as xml.el?  Because in shr.el the code converts the libxml DOM into 
its own DOM.  But that's just from my memory.

I think it would be awesome if we had one unified DOM implementation, which 
could either use libxml (if available) or xml.el (as a fallback) to parse XML.
