I hereby deny the usefulness of the box, per se.
I am of the opinion that SAX, ((J?D)|X)OM, etc. are all aspirants for a "service-oriented" architecture for document processing. In my world, XML is one of the least-likely inputs -- well-formed or not -- and outputs, but the generic functionality provided by XML tools -- data type/structural expression/validation, structural rearrangement (e.g., XSLT), etc. -- is of significant value.
