If "pull" is a flow-control requirement such that the program
stack is controlled by the data consumer (the program has the
while loop), then DOM is "pull". Likewise, if "push" is a
flow-control requirement such that the program stack is
controlled by the data provider (the parser has the while
loop), then SAX is "push".
The "slurping" noise is caused by DOM's random access requirement.
It has nothing to do with the flow-control aspect of the model.

From what I understand, Paul's (quite wonderful) Pull DOM is
a not-quite-compliant DOM where you can't go backwards. Thus,
it has a pull-interface (the program has the while loop) but
only requires sequential-access. This works since a restricted
version of DOM is being used.
