Discussing the underlying parser for a particular DOM implementation might as
well be a philosophical discussion. Either way the application developer
shouldn't be interacting with it until all the XML has already been parsed and
populates the Document object and its child nodes.

XML is a web technology and a lot of it's related work is created by web
developers and placed on the web. If you are waiting for some printed tome or
ordinance from above to be the official end all and be all of XML knowledge
and definitions then you will be waiting till the proverbial porcines soar
through the sky.

If I have equipment which performs an important function, it will not
be activated by a lever that someone could trigger by accidentally falling
on when fatally wounded.
