I have been using DXP for validation when required and have found that it
is not only slow but can throw OutOfMemoryError for large documents. This
is with a version about 1998-02 - I am not clear whether there is a later
one. [I didn't find a SAX1.0-compliant one last time I looked.]

I normally use AElfred as my non-validating parser under SAX and have
switched to using xml4j for the validating parser which has managed an 11
Mbyte document for me without problems.
