I hope this is not seen as an abuse of the list.

I'm trying to describe the value of groves/DOM etc. vs. event model
parsing and I find my self unable to come up with much other than
contrived examples. Can you give examples of common situations where
it is useful to have access to:

1. Children before their content has been processed.
2. Right siblings, right siblings of an ancestor etc.
3. Children of a parent's/ancestor's left sibling etc.

I think handling colspec/spanspec in a CALS table is an example of 3,
but I'd enjoy reading other examples.
