In my experience if you use Expat as a parser it doesn't seem to matter.
All the overhead of network, message queueing, database interaction etc.
are a lot larger than a few ms for XML parsing.

Currently I'm using them together: based on a WSDL description output
custom packers and unpackers that create/decode SOAP, and route it
through a messaging layer (MSMS or MQSeries).
