The application will know that the parser is finished with the stream
when it receives an endDocument() event; however, there will be cases
where the CharacterStream or ByteStream implementation will not be too
tightly coupled with the handlers, and there will be others where the
application has not implemented the DocumentHandler interface;
all-in-all, then, adding close() seems like a good suggestion.

All the best,
