My parser Lark (the world's first XML parser, not worked on since 
1998, sob) had an advantage because even though it was in Java it
had a preprocessor as a side-effect of the way it was built.  So
it had another incarnation named Larval which did DTD validation
but *none* of that code went into the nonvalidating version, which
stayed down under 50K class files IIRC.   Could've been smaller
too since it had code to build & traverse a simple DOM-like tree.
