Yes.  Definitely.  The more of this that can be generalised, the better.
Essentially quite a lot of JUMBO is involved in this sort of processing
and I'd be more than happy to try to migrate JUMBO's ideas towards an API.
My Node class (== Element, more or less) has nearly 100 member functions,
and I'll try to post them as a javadoc API (just needs locating on the WWW).

I feel very comfortable with the event stream API and I would certainly
not substitute it.  Essentially JUMBO can consume Elements from either an
NXP-like event stream, or a Lark-like tree structure.  It may be useful to
identify those objects such as Element and Attribute that are relevant to both
environments, and there could be an Element/Attribute Factory sitting on top
of both (but leaving them exposed as well for those who need the lower level).
