Hello all,
I'm working on an application that will require in-memory modification of a DOM tree. This is a tedious task using only raw DOM manipulation. Unfortunately, the existing XML<->Object frameworks (DXML, JDOM, etc.) are not suitable for my purposes.

I thought it might be somewhat interesting to turn XPath inside out and use it to assign values to nodes rather than extract node values. So, I'm wondering if this functionality exists anywhere or if my thinking is in some way flawed.
