Some (very late) thoughts:

- I find the idea of snipping out an orphan <li> (representing a single message)
and passing it around a little creepy. It might not actually be immoral, but it
feels that way.

- Does document ordering imply enough so that it's not necessary to enclose
the transcript in anything in particular? Even if not, is the format of the
individual messages perhaps a different thing than the enclosing element
representing "one complete transcript"? Ref the "I want to cut and paste (and
stream) messages" question above.
