These are standard DOM methods. I'm trying this myself right now, but
I'm having trouble. What for instance, if you expect the first subnode
to be 'title'? Saying getChildNodes doesn't work, as there may be
empty textnodes around still. How do you skip these?
objectValues('title') skips those automatically.
I should think some more. :)
