Yes.  Random vs. sequential access is an othogonal issue.

         Sequential      Random
  Push | SAX             (recursive visitor)
  Pull | Pull Parser     DOM

The confusion arises since SAX and DOM are different
in two regards: (a) processing model (push vs pull)
and (b) access model (random vs sequential).  

The XML Pull Parser is an example which is SAX-like 
in that it is sequential access, but DOM-like in that
it has a pull interface.   The other permutation
is a recurisive visitor interface.  You can scan
the SML-DEV archives if you'd like more information
on this... it doesn't seem to be as useful as the
other three permutations.
