That would certainly be unique and powerful.  What would this 
hypothetical class allow?  Consider the following:

Create and Append at Position-- new Element('#content div#mynode.someClass')
Define Attributes-- new Element('[EMAIL PROTECTED]"text"]')
Create an Array of Nodes-- new Element('#address li.errors span')

The more I think about it, the more my brain hurts.  Not sure if that 
means it is a good idea or not :P
