It seems like a fairly simple thing to manage, because the
dependencies are mostly one-way -- the driver could deliver events in
chunks of 100 (or 1,000, or whatever), blocking only when it needs
user input from an EntityResolver.

That might be an extreme position.  MS certainly has reduced
techno-diversity in commercial software, but it hasn't been able to do
much damage to free software (which is where most XML parsers live):
for example, Apache and Perl still own their markets.

All the best,
