Looks like most of the functions require a docID as the first parameter. This seems a bit onerous if my stack never loads an external XML doc.
To what extent is the loaded XML doc acting like a built-in Rev object -- on par with cards, fields, buttons, etc.? Is this the intent of the Rev/MetaCard programmers?
