I am wondering why there is no API combining Push or Pull with DOM.
Most DOM parsers have an underlying event parser anyway.
That way you can hook yourself into the building of the DOM tree
and choose which nodes to keep, and which ones to discard or transform.
Might be an idea for the new XOM API.
