Well, that is what I usually do - using a SAX parser
and building an application specific object hierarchy (not really DOM).

It would be convenient, however, if the API standardized this.

Example with some Pull API (pseudo-Pascal):

while Parser.NextNode do
  Node := Parser.Node;
  case Node.Type of
      if TElement(Node).Name = 'SomeName' then
        Parser.KeepNode(Node);  // this adds the node to the tree
