Remotely loaded XML DOM converted to HTML content model

When loading XML through XMLHttpRequest, the resulting DOM does not allow access to content of elements, which happen to have the same element name in html AND which have an empty content model in html.

Example: the <link>...</link> element from various RSS flavors is not available in Safari, using DOM methods, because an empty <link/> element is defined for html.
