Of course, real-world apps that want to use a streaming API probably  
want a drop-in SAX replacement and don't want to maintain a non- 
parser-exposed private DOM that could respond to the mutation events.  
(If they had a DOM-like tree internally, exposing it to the parser  
tree builder would probably be simpler than trying to hide it behind  
mutation events.)

In *practice*, streaming considerations mean SAX or rough equivalents  
(e.g. the expat native API).
