Such a stream could be brain-dead, bonehead simple to construct -- for 
example, formfeed (^L) is not allowed in XML documents, so you could
have a UDP stream consisting of a bunch of self-identifying XML
snippits separated by ^L -- to resync, the client just has to wait for 
the ^L and then start reading (my example uses the two characters "^L" 
rather than an actual formfeed to avoid screwing up mail readers):

<alert xmlns="http://www.investor.com/ns/">
<alert xmlns="http://www.investor.com/ns/">
<alert xmlns="http://www.investor.com/ns/">

All the best,
