I'm not sure about that... There was some debate when SAX was being
designed. There's an escape clause for XML "provided by an external
transport protocol" which makes it legitimate to present the parser with a
stream of characters rather than bytes. I've certainly found this useful
when the XML is stored in a database rather than a file.
