That's precisely what we are doing - option  for interfacing with
external components, [2-3-4] for in-process components. I think of it as
not so much losing a document, more like gaining an infoset. Some of
these are areas that just wouldn't be viable for fully serialised XML.
Who's claiming a place on the short list of the net's highest-throughput
