In addition to David Megginson's points, I'll point out that
DOM supports providing more information than SAX exposes.  

There are reasonable arguments to be had about how useful that
additional information is, really -- comments aren't supposed
to hold information used by a program, as one example, though
it's reasonable to let programs emit commented XML.  (Not that
DOM level 1 lets you emit XML! :-)
