namespace gdcm
 * \brief Reader ala DOM (Document Object Model)
 * \details This class is a non-validating reader, it will only performs well-
 * formedness check only, and to some extent catch known error (non
 * well-formed document).
 * Detailled description here
 * A DataSet DOES NOT contains group 0x0002 (see FileMetaInformation)
 * This is really a DataSet reader. This will not make sure the dataset conform
 * to any IOD at all. This is a completely different step. The reasoning was
 * that user could control the IOD there lib would handle and thus we would not
 * be able to read a DataSet if the IOD was not found Instead we separate the
 * reading from the validation.
 * \note
 * From GDCM1.x. Users will realize that one feature is missing
 * from this DOM implementation. In GDCM 1.x user used to be able to
 * control the size of the Value to be read. By default it was 0xfff.
 * The main author of GDCM2 thought this was too dangerous and harmful and
 * therefore this feature did not make it into GDCM2
 * \warning
 * GDCM will not produce warning for unorder (non-alphabetical order).
 * \see Writer FileMetaInformation DataSet File
